Dear Mother + Father:
I shall be awfully busy to-day, + I didn't know if I would have time to write or not, hence the telegram. besides which, I was very much excited. The [serial] ([speakers] + alternates, but not yet distinguished) were announced last night at an "Ellis Island immigrant party", but more of that again. Enough to say that it was loads of fun + very exciting. I could not go to sleep for ages. Now the [hard pull] starts. I hope I'll last allright. One of these days soon you'll get a lengthy letter about it - about 7 pages, I guess.
