Wrote you once to-day, but had some news for you.
My old Colonel Flynn has just been brought in the Hospital with a serious heart attack, (Coronis Thrombosis) to you.
He may have a bit harder time than I had. You know, he is past 50+ and that will count a lot with such a sickness. What bad luck for the Regiment two of us seniors out of the way.

Feel pretty good.
A big kiss
