Dear Victor,
I had no idea there was a Bellringer's newspaper, though I suppose I ought to have guessed it, since I beleive1 that stamp collectors and rabbit breeders also have one each.
We are glad to think you will soon have Mary with you. She came to see us a little while before she left, looking younger and prettier than ever.2
Love from us both to you both,
Uncle Ralph
