From my pay 67.00
Kindly read this letter and answer me the questions asked. This is about the 4th time I have mentionned this.
Now did you receive my medals.
My clothes are all at Emilia.
Answer this also.
I sent Emilia one picture taken by the London Illustrated of Emile Poirier & myself.
She is to send it to you. I also mailed you lots of menus from the Aquitania. They are marvelous.
Hope you are feeling better. I cable Warren on Xmas day thinking that you’d all be there. I am surprise Carrie didn’t write you about it. Nough said. It is very cold here and the school work very interesting.
