or a shave & we did look a lot

of bearded ruffians. No thanks

I only take necessary risks but

of course shells & such like

have a nasty habit of dropping

once now & again into really

killed a few days ago. We were

all very sorry for he was such

a good fellow & had done splendidly

out here.

  Fancy Kenneth wandering all

over York like that. Why he'll be

able to start learning to play

Glad you got on so well with

the Dr. who was it - 'cause I might

be jealous. Don't see how you

could fail.

  I wonder if you are going 

back to Heslington to-day. Poor 

old Kenneth - did the big bed

frighten him. He rather had you
