Monday Evening [21 May 1945]
Just now all my headaches have disappeared. I didn't sleep much last night but what does insomnia signify or a headache when the rich glow of your 'Hudson Bay' is making this tedious and jerky C.N.R. trip feel like a summer trip around Honolulu. I am in tip top form.
My deepest gratitude for it and for your lovely presentation remarks Friday morning. Nothing could have been nicer.
The Winnipegers are grand; all round. Your dinner Thursday evening was a humdinger and the gang afterwards perfect. Vi and I love them. And how kind and considerate was Mrs Wallis to give us that motor trip around the city!
I shall be on the look-out for the Duncans next fall when I get back from the East. Will you be coming this way too?
I shall have to go on a diet in the next few weeks to get rid of the surplus obesity caused by the Winnipeg visit. I shall go easy on the solids anyway.
The very best of everything to you old boy.
