Friday am. [12 Nov. 1954]
How are you today? I thought I would wait till the mail came before I wrote so as to hand you on the news.
I have just telephoned Mrs Davis and explained the situation. She understands.
I made a fine job of my breakfast. Having been at Poss's last night for dinner I came home with a can of condensed milk, some butter and four slices of bread one slice I burned in characteristic manner but still edible. The bacon took away part of the scorching. (My pen has gone bughouse 39 cents. So now I use a pencil.)
How is sweet Cakes? I trust she is improving daily. When you decide to return let me know so I can take over. Peg will get me a room.
Yesterday I had lunch at St Mike's. Marshall McLuhan had me at the house first and then I sat with the 'cloth' Shook, McCorkell, Kelly and others.
There is not much doing around the place. I have to answer correspondence and wash dishes and sneeze. I am sending on your letters but retaining the W.M.S. letter which looks like your cheque.
I have dinner with Hincks tonight, but hope to be home early.
Blessings and love on the both of you.
