My Dear Harry, I was across at the other compound a couple of weeks ago to see a soccer match & saw your friend Glen Godden. I hadn't met him before but seems a very nice chap. Unfortunately I couldn't have long with him but he seemed quite fit [censored words] Also saw Neville Barker from [indecipherable word]. Best wishes for happy Xmas & Prosperous New Year Love to all, Donald
