Dear Mom and Pop:
We managed to find out what evening you would be through here from Dick Lipman, but felt so exhausted that particular night that I decided not to try to get down to the airport. My intentions were good, however. We shall certainly be very happy to have you stay with us a few days on your way back to California.
I enclose a carbon of a letter that Ted Dunham sent to me in case he missed you in California. I am forwarding it accordingly.
If you happen to go into a second-hand bookstore in Australia or New Zealand, please look for a book of stories by Louis Becke for me. He wrote about the "South Pacific' and according to James Michener, is the only authentic writer on the subject. Familiarity with him can be used to tell the men from the boys.
Meanwhile, everything is going along well here and the children are all growing by leaps and bounds. Liny is doing better in school although he still doesn't like to do his homework.
We'll be expecting you about the end of November or the beginning of December.
