Dear Kathleen, Dreadfully sorry about Ian. Have postponed writing for a long time in the hope that Girlie would say there had been news of him. I refuse to say any more because there may be still be hope. How are the two boys? We hope to make their acquaintance soon. Please give my best wishes to your mother & father. I often wonder how you all are. Best wishes H [/underlined]
