4 So glad to know you have got back safely & had a fine time. Am glad of
5the enclosures which I am just going to read. Am anxious to know your
6real view of things American. Did you meet my friend Mrs Jackson whom
7I met at your house? If so can you give me her address? She is one the
8most attractive women I have ever met. I wish she lived in England.
