Dear Des:

I shall spread the word around and if I see any likely prospects I shall urge them to get into communication with you pronto. I am delighted that two of my former nominees turned out so well. They think a lot of you.

If I see Callaghan I'll pass on the word. I think he is out of the city a lot.

As ever
Ned Pratt

Your Grove book is getting more and more commendations. You are becoming both prolific and expert.
