My dear Mother,
I got a pile of letters from you and the kiddies today and was very pleased to get them.
Sorry poor Harry has passed away. I will keep an eye out for Verdi.
I am in Egypt again, doing well – only got here yesterday.
Glad you are getting a good season. Will write again. Haven’t been able to post for some time. Unavoidable.
Love to all Stid.
