Dear Newton. Thanks so much for yours of Sept 5th, I regret that your other letters didn’t manage to get through, but nevertheless thanks for the effort. You would know many of the people here & we keep pretty well in touch with current affairs, which certainly seem to be getting a move on these days. So very glad you made it, and to hear such very good news of you. We are all becoming very excited waiting for the big day which doesn’t seem very far off now, then I think a roll in the gutter for about seven days. Well cheerio for the present, hope your wife is quite OK & lots of luck
Yours very sincerely
Roy. B. Langlois
