1 I’ve thought of a plan. When I go to the Cape if I write to any one,
2enclose three thin English post cards for them to post here. I’ve
3already bought a supply! I’ve written to ask Fred. I didn’t go to
4see Bret Hart at the last; am saving your letter till I write to him!!
5I’m so glad of your good news but you don’t say how you are
6feeling.
