Dear Julien, Have just returned from friends in Normandy / so could not reply sooner, hope Brightlingsea is soothing / you voluptuously, I hope you dont resemble that portrait / by Rex Whistler, and keep away from the aqaurium, a vast / catty fish raped me there once, at dusk. / Will journey to visit soon, will let you know, will wear either basic black and pearls or coffee lace, may I have / tiny cucumber sandwiches et jin please? / am deluged by kids and paint at present, a day away from / it all would be joy indeed, and the churches at Branber, / Steyning and Shorham call wildly, the latter most of all, / Glen & Geoffrey send greetins, they would like to buy you / seventeen beers in seasidia too, so expect us when its sunny, / fondily, jhzjimnn (typed in black ink, recto)
