A jinx is on you and me. I did want to see you, of course,
but I am afraid contact was not made. I rang Muff yesterday
but got no reply. However, I will try again. Sean was good
enough to tell me that 'Philadelphia' opens in London. Hope all
Saw 'Lovers': great pleasure but was unfortunately not sober
having been to a dinner narty in Dublin beforehand. Met Hewitt
at gate, who was enthusiastic. He enjoyed 1) more than 2), but
did get some laughter out of 2). Would like to discuss sometime
before we are both too old and crabbity.
Love to Ann and the family.
I am messing around here with old television and a lot of
other stuff. I want a whine over your shouler some day soon.
