Darling Twinnies1

Music is the one subject no Menuhin6 ever talks about! Yehudi7 least of all. He would be interested to hear about Grand Manan8, and especially about your trip from Casper9 to Cou Colusa5. He's "a little mad" about [illegible] motoring, as Stephen10 would say. We would say "just crazy". I like Stephen's way of putting it better.

Adieu in haste, my darlings W.

We11 love the snap shots—especially Gannet12 and your barn.
