My dear Jim1:

The mistake that bothered me may have been made by some new clerk in the bank. I have very recently changed my account with the Chase Bank from the branch at 200 Fifth Avenue to the Park Avenue branch, which is only three blocks away from me. The correct address is as follows: Chase National Bank Park Avenue Branch Park Avenue & 60th Street New York 21, N. Y.2 Envelopes should be addressed directly to the bank, rather than to me in care of the bank.

Helen Louise5 came into town to lunch with me last week. She was looking very well and very charming. I am very fond of her, and it always gives me great pleasure to see her. I think you and Ethel6 must be very proud to have such a dear daughter.
