Thursday [16 Dec. 1954]

Darlings:

It's a joy to know that both of you are doing well. Your Monday card, Vi, came this morning.

The dinner came off well. All the resolutions were passed unanimously. Clare Hincks left today for New York to canvas for funds. He may run up to the Hospital.

Tonight I go down to the Royal York with Cal for dinner. He may leave for home Sunday.

There are so many Christmas cards at the house that I can't count them. Some of them I am sending on especially the sealed ones.

I should like to run down to New York some convenient time after the New Year – when the rush is over. We can talk this over later but I should love to see the both of you.

Blessings on you both,
Father Ned
