Dear Michael & Eslyn,

This is from us both.  It was nice to have your letter to welcome us home.  We have had a good time in USA, but are very glad to be home again, and back at work – I hope.
We are going to Troilus1 next week, the libretto is good.  I know nothing about the music yet.
The cats were most affectionate,
Love to you both from us both,

from Uncle Ralph2
