To-day has been a lucky day for me.

I wandered down to the stores to see

if the mail had arrived & I was

presented with a letter & a parcel.

The parcel had been on the way

for so many days that I thought it

must have gone west. The pipes were

most welcome & both were at once

brought into use and are going

strong. You see Dean was without 

a pipe also and so I handed one

over to him. We both think you 

made an excellent choice. Dean

sends special thanks to you. He wanted

to pay me but as I wouldn't hear of

that he says he will buy me another

someday. The loaf Ma sent was

in excellent form & was much enjoyed

for tea to-day. I think the diary will

do quite nicely and should last a

year all right. I generally

manage to carry a pencil for there is
