This is truly how history is made – families interacting with each other and recording those interactions. This is all the more amazing when it involved pen on paper and the process of mail being carried across country, countries and oceans.

Dear Ced –
Trust you are contentedly plucking icicles from your beard whilst counting the revolutions of one prop and another. Do not forget to reverse your parka come next grass.
Heard about the Great Flight, and your short visit here at 10 Perry. Was sorry that I was unable to be here at that time, but due to an unavoidable condition of water and distance, had to miss you. Guess you have already heard of our Christmas visit at the now fully domesticated Guion Home in Trumbull. Had a good time there, and was glad to have been able to see those of your family that were present. Haven’t been back up that way again, but expect to sometime in the near future. Very near.
(In this space consider the usual questions pertaining to your health and general condition, etc., fully and adequately entered.)
