Naturally it pleased me a lot to have this expression from an old friend. No doubt you and Rouie are dyed-in-the-wool Californians by now. However, in that part of the qountry you frequently encounter old friends from Ogden.

Nevertheless, contrary to you folks, we do not feel that we are permanently located and still look forward to returning to the West when this tour of duty is over. With best wishes to you both in which Larry joins, I am Yours sincerely, M. £ . Eccles > LC/fgr
