Dear Newton; Thanks so much for yours of Feb 6th – Congrats on the addition you mentioned, you must be very proud, & I am so awfully pleased for you. We are all incredibly optimistic and excited as the great day looms closer & closer, we have had some sticky moments but so far so good. Am doing a big fitness build up, and really feel I could lick my weight in wild cats tonight – Actually I think I am fitter that I have been since that fateful night, which seems almost part of another life these days. Well all the very best of luck, being seeing you soon I hope – big saalams to your wife
Yours very sincerely
Roy Langois
