Dear Father Guinan:

My thanks for all your kindness and hospitality. Your word passed along to Jack Tatton worked charms. C.C. was wonderful. Commend me to the South – & to Texas for everything fine in human nature.

And your Residence was a perfect home. You are a grand bunch of fellows – God bless you. I am beginning to feel like a Basilian myself – my favourite order. I shall transmit my feelings on the subject to Father McCorkell.

My love to you all.
E. J. Pratt
