Monday [2 Aug. 1948]

Dear bacon and eggs and toast well done:

You can decide which is which among the three of you. Vi, sweet, you can have first choice, and let me emphasize that this salutation is the highest compliment I can pay. What are peaches and cream, lampreys and roses! Nothing but clichés! Arrived here on time and feeling fine. I hope Cayke gets in to-night not too tired.

Much love,
Ned.
