Dear La Verne:-

You can see by this that I have received the cigs.

Thanks a million dear. I really enjoyed them & now that I’m down to the card I am returning it to you.

Have had a bad cold this week, but am improving now.

I will write a letter in a couple days when I feel better.

I hope you are all well over there. Be sure & write whenever you have time. I will close for now

Lovingly Yours    Harry
