Dear Art

Praise God from whom all blessings flow?

I read your poem in the Canadian Forum and I boomed with delight to everyone within hearing. I am cutting it out to send to Diana, who is now the mother of one son called Tony who is about 18 months old. I, believe it or not am his God-father – whatever that is. – All well enough on this front, except that Rae – God bless her has a slipped disk in her arse-bone, & is not too comfortable. We'll be here most of the summer, so if you should be passing through on your way to Magog – please give us a ring.

All good wishes to you, Jeanie and Peter.

Yours
Ned Pratt
