Oh lor! Didn't you "ricochet" when

you struck Mr Boddy? After your

evening at Winnie Carr's, I'm going

to call you "Chippy", just to pay

poor father gets all the blame (as usual)

- but he doesn't mind a bit - see? The

"Balmoral" I should describe as

"moderate" for a young lady to stay at.

opposite the end of Huntriss Row. It

is more a business men's or

commercial Hotel, than a visitors'

place. Harold + I had dinner there
