I got the pen, papers and also your nice P.C. Come over here and bring Alice & Annie & Eva. You could do a nice paddle here, better than the River Aire. Next address c/o Grand Canary Coal Co, Las Palmas. Canary Islands. We should get there in 10 days time and stay there 10 days. Well love to all and be good. Hope to see you all in summer if I don’t stay in NY. Stevie
