Letter No.: 
October 16, 1953

Dearest Fiona,
Thank you so much for your birthday wishes.
Your songs certainly ought to be published, and I hope very much that you will get into ASCAP.1
Love from both of us
Uncle Ralph

We look forward to seeing you here: it's a lovely house, and we are well settled now, Ralph takes me out on the lake, and rows with great dash and style.
