Sounds all right. But I wish I didn't know that a cheap tabloid columnist, "Wallie Boren"4, wrote nearly all his5 campaign speeches x and I wish his sister6 were not an intolerably vulgar beauty parlor product. And I wish his own hair were not so wavy7. Does he want to look like a poet, or a very winning salesman? I cant see Churchill8 and this oily boy doing any business together.
Miss Bloom 9 is sick and this confounded hand10 won't do anything for me—except tell you once more that I love you very dearly.W. Mr. R. C. Cather1, First Savings Bank of Colusa, Colusa3, California. NEW YORK, N. Y.2 FEB 19 1944 2-PM
