Dear Brother1

Things are pretty complicated just now—countless business details holding me here2 in this heat. I can't lie down when my publisher is working so hard for the new book5. It's going over big, as they say. But I still desperately hope6 to get the twins7 to Grand Manan8 in August. I can't be sure, tell them, but I hoping.

Lovingly Willie
