Darlings both

Glad the Pepys was found. I am not bothering much about the Swift. The work is getting much easier as I make the beggars read a lot in class. – Paragraph by paragraph from Conciliation while I comment.

Another week from tomorrow and I am vamoosing for Toronto.

I am sending 3 one-dollar american bills for Claire to add to her amount which is down in the right hand upper drawer in my bedroom. I think there is six or seven dollars there already. The other five is to help on the gas etc.

Love.
Ned.
