Dear Cayke:

I finished up the collection for Pelham's Portrait today. We managed to raise $600.00 chiefly among his old friends. It was hard getting it in dribbles of $5.00 mainly. So by Xmas time we'll hang it in the Library. Peggy is arranging the event and ceremony. My job is to draw aside the curtain after Lorne Pierce has pronounced the 'Eulogium.' Allan Barr is down on his uppers and the 600 will come in useful, but after that he is dependent on commissions which come rarely.

Mother is out attending the 50th anniversary of the U.W.C. One act of the performers is to have a cheer-leader going on the double leading ten women in shorts – most of them are between 50 and 60 years – What a show!
