Kelowna, B. C.
My dearest Kathleen,
Thank you ever so much for the very charming little pencil case. I am awfully pleased with it.
I remember so well suddenly snatching your programme pencil in the hall at Heythrop and have never ceased to be surprised at my audacity. I wondered afterwards if you thought I had temporarily gone crazy but I simply had to have a memento of that dance. If we had lived in prehistoric days I should probably have gone off with you as well despite your protests.
I sent you a letter yesterday so there is nothing more to add now.
This time next month I hope to be in the train just starting on my return trip. It isn’t long, is it?
With all my love, dear, and many thanks,
Yours as always,
