Dear Mr. Newton,
I was very pleased to receive your letter of the I6th. [sic] inst. and to know that you are coming over here for a few days leave.
Of course I remember you and your two comrades who unfortunately were not so lucky as you and were taken prisoners of war in France.
I have started the above forwarding and shipping firm a few months ago and am very little free on week days so if at all possible I would suggest you coming to Antwerp either on a Saterday [sic] or a Sunday. My wife (ex: Miss van Eeckhoven who you met in I94I; [sic] we were married in July) and myself would be most pleased if you could stay a whole Sunday with us and to show you all the places you were on the 6th. & 7th. August I94I. [sic] – Mr Duquenne to whose house you were brought in Antwerp is also most eager to see you again.
Of course if you cannot manage a Sunday or Saterday [sic] you are always welcome on a week-day. Please avoid a Wednesday for most business men have to go to the Brussels exchange. I myself go on Wednesdays to Brussels and am at the PRINCES TAVERN, Place de Brouckère from two to three o’clock.
If possible please let me know by ‘phone (no 38009 during office hours and no 762I7 otherwise) when you will come to see us. You will of course come in the morning and dine with us and if you can stay overnight so much the better.
We are all looking forward to your arrival.
Yours sin-cerely, [sic]

[inserted] Shall we see your wife and Jacqueline? [/inserted]
