My darling Cathie:

I am enclosing the pix I promised you. They’re not so hot, but it’s all I can do at the present. You’ll find explanations written on the reverse side of each.

Honey, this is not a letter, I want to get these photos off in this afternoon’s mail, so it’ll be on the plane leaving San Antonio at 4 p.m. I’ll write later. I wrote you an Air Mail epistle yesterday. You know what I’d like for a Christmas present (more than anything else) – a nice colored [sic] portrait of one Cathy (ie, I should spell it, forgive me) [indecipherable word]. I’m shopping around for you something. Don’t know what it’ll be, but I have an idea, & I’m not telling you. So for now

All my love

Always
As Ever
Heathcliffe
