My dearest Ryksa,
At last I find cultural solace: a gallery of most arresting art works – I find particularly engaging some semi-abstract historical impressions of the city. Very evocative (EVOCATIVE – in case my scrawl appears like erocative and suggests suggestiveness) personal postcards. Which brings us to vacations! Surely you remember? The sun, the sand, the sea, the sickness and diarrhoea we shared after the unpleasant iced cream? At the last farewell you begged me, “keep in touch – sign, phone or letter!” And after all, here I am, only fifty years later!
Yours, ever constant in my adoration, Strachan
