Dear Leo 

I imagine you recieved the objects. I hope you like them. I think they look nice all together or rather very near each other.

I had to send you a telegram because I had just returned from my summer vacation. I went to Monaco and Isquia. I was away for a month. 

Bill is here. I was shocked when I saw him. He looks as though half of his body shrank, from his waist up. 

I am planning to go to Paris in November when my lease ends

Write me soon
