Dear Mr. Markham,
Thanks – a thousand thanks! – for the little birthday gift. I know the “Eclogues” only by reputation, and want to make them my own, in the real sense.
I am sending a screamingly funny cartoon of our Monday lunch club. All that our club lacks is the benediction of your presence. Come any Monday at 12:30. We have outgrown the Café Hungaria, and moving into the Union Square Hotel, next door.
Viereck and I have been spending a Sunday with Ferdinand Earle at Monroe. We were only sorry you and Mrs. Markham would not be there also.
With affectionate greeting,
Leonard Abbott
