I am so glad to hear from you! I've been feeling rather deserted, you see. Afraid I've come to lean on you and Meta3 an awful lot. Our family has thinned out so. Jim4 and Jack5 can't even remember the real old times, and Elsie's6 recollection of them are exclusively of the unpleasant features, and are, as the little English boy said after reading reports of the bombing of his native town, "grossly exaggerated."
Dear brother, I have slept on a hair pillow for years. Do you (not a question but imperative mood) carry a little hair pillow in your suit case and when you are traveling in sleeping cars put it between your head and the filthy germ-saturated Pullman pillows.With love from us both to both of you Willie A "Treadway Inn" Williams Inn
