Dear Mother + Father:

I worked in the Libe yester-day morning and then played tennis for an hour before lunch with Mart Hay. I left right after lunch for N.Y. on the 2 P.M, and on the train coming down read a play for Drama Galsworthy's "A Family Man." So the time was not wasted. Got [home] at 5:19. I brought my clubs along - I thought Uncle Ike might play today, because the last time he insisted I should have brought them. but he's in Cleveland, so it was rather useless.

Aunt Bessie says she will write one of these days. if the kids give her a chance.



Don't eat too much tomorrow. I can scarcely remember a year that I haven't had some excuse for [eating]!
