Dear Geo,
I’ll aim to write letter tomorrow to 2021. Am doing well.
Planted a bet here at the University O.K. & got the cash in pocket after big debate. Excitement time. Good that I actually know more abt. the sub. than any of the prof. or scholars, whom I meet. Selah!
Thus far in all case where I’ve left a set to exam – the order came.
“Beer to the right of them, beer to the left of them, around, popping and gurgled” etc. etc. Recital of the Charge of the Light Brigade.
P.S. the 2nd request to see a set by ordering, each proved O.K. & I planted 2 & got the “wealth” O.K.

E. is full of enthusiasm about the A.G.T. and their plans for his work. He says he thinks it is just the kind of work he wants. There are lots of apartment possibilities for us, and we are working hard investigating them. Our furniture is on the way, so we’ve got to get some things settled soon. It’s lots of fun exploring this city, and I think there are ever so many nice things about it. Lots of Love, K.
