If not I shall be awful down in the mouth. The post card you sent from Marblehead came to hand only when I got here at the tail-end of November. I did give you a jingle sometime after I got back from the Summer Theaters tour in September but there was never any answer. I hope you had a lovely holiday. I tried-out Miss Casey's play without too much success. But we had some lovely bus rides! My best to you & [illegible]."
