I see that it arrived in 1 day being 1st class. (I think the P.C. don't give a damn about 2nd class stuff and I read that most people send letters 2nd now. When we write about dates it may be safer to give in to the buggers and send by 1st xxxxx class.) YES. Wednes., 23 July at Europa, from 3 onwards. Fine. Note what you x say about FV. Yes, you may be right about a recovery. Of course he's 15 yrs older,rather over- weight now and shows xxxxx years - walks like quite an elderly man - has very slow physical and mental reactions. Very sad. As for LG, I think he’s a case of sheer disappointment. He's a hard tryer,a real Ulsterman in that respect, but he always seems to aim at unrealisable goals. And he won't take advice which he construes as one-up- manship and malice. Sad in a different kind of way. You’re right - he can’t take middle-age and just keeps cursing it. Which doesn’t help. Text
