Dear Fred:

At lunch this noon, Mrs. Hampson calls to my attention the Americans celebrate the Signing of the Declaration of Independence July 4, next, and that date happens to fall on a Saturday.

Frances is home from the hospital and in good repair. We have had considerable wet weather and the inside house painting has not carried on as rapidly as expected. It may stretch out over a couple of three weeks yet; however, if you boys can stand the odor [odour] of fresh paint, we would like mighty well to have your company the week-end of July 4, beginning Friday evening, if convenient to you. We could very easily plan to meet you within driving range from Fredonia, by car.

Our invitation to you boys is always open and we particularly extend it at this time thinking it a very proper celebration of our Declaration of Independence to have lads of the Royal Air Force helping us.

Trusting that you and John or some combination of the Air Force can be with us, I am,

Sincerely,
[signed] T. D. Hampson [/signed]
