My Dear Mr & Mrs Baker - Very many thanks indeed for your kind presents of cigarettes & tobacco which arrived some time ago. It was very good of you & the English Brands were very welcome as a change. I’m very pleased to hear that the Inyazura tobacco crops have been so good this year & hope the prices are correspondingly good. Don is as fit as usual & we sincerely hope we’ll all be back this year ever Yrs.
