Hello Vic,

Thanks a lot for the letter & the wee message from Barbara; yes I know I'm lucky her to come back to. Believe me Vic, I feel like a millionaire & wanting for nothing just so long as Barbara is mine. It's really a good feeling isn't it? Yes, yes the old knee is coping O.K. but I can't run & that's binding especially when there is Soccer & Rugger played here. How are you Pam? I feel I know you already, just buck your husband up & send a photograph. Will you do that for me? Maybe he's just forgotten, because he's really a good guy underneath.

Ah well, cherio [sic] you two lucky b .....s

Yours Ted.
