London, Saturday morning, 3:00 am
You see what time it is; I have just landed to my hotel room from a marveleous dinner and reception, given to the Canadians by our ex Pr. Minister The Hon. R.B. Bennett who now resides in Kent England. We sat at table at 9:00 pm. Drank everything from Champagne to 1850 wine heard speaches galore and returned sober as a judge & now writing you before retiring.
I have a luncheon engagement at 1:00 pm. High Commissioner of Canada there I shall speak for French Canada.
What will I say?
This army life is just like a dream.
Kermit Roosevelt was my host to-night i.e. my table associate. We had from Lords to whatnots etc.
I’ll try and pose for a decent picture to-day in a London studio. In the meantime another snap of Sir Robert Block Bart & myself taken on the street a few weeks ago – one of those 25¢ snap. Not bad eh.
Falling asleep by the minute, and what a rotten pen I am using.
Good night darling
Lots of love
