Good old Leo:

It will be a delight to see your old mug again. I am leaving on Tuesday midnight train getting in Wednesday morning Nov. 12. I shall go at once to the Mount Royal Hotel, when I shall get in touch with Mrs. MacLeod. As I must leave that same night (Wednesday midnight) it will be impossible to do much waltzing about. But that informal party of yours is really my cup of tea. No speeches please if you love me. I must reserve my throat for the evening.

A.J.M. thinks a lot of you. He is a grand fellow. I took an immense liking to him. So did the rest of the boys.

affectionately,
Ned Pratt
