Dear Gug:-

Comment vous partez-vous? Say Gug, I sure am in luck. There is a house party on at Folletts & they are going to have a shine, Marg Lind, Ida Northey and all the rest of the bunch are there and Doc Stead says my heart is working like it was making a hill on three cylinders, but it will be about right in a week he says, so I will be back about Sat. for sure this time unless I'm croaked. Pork says you have some cash of mine, if so I sure would be tickled if you would send me a bit I'm about 27? from bed-rock and you know that song about the "high cost of living." Doc told me yesterday that its influenza I have and its got after my heart. How is everything in Georgetown. I would certainly like to get back. I am handled so carefully here I sometimes think "my name ought'a been s" as Blackall hath it. What do you think about the artillery. We might be able to pull it off. Bill Gibson was in town yesterday.

Love to all the boys. votre ami G.B. Chisholm
