          Aniclito Lazzeroni seem to still be there. I got a post card from the French boy Robert who

used to work fo LaGaucier on the Trans Atlantic boat and has gone back to France, it was

forwarded from Cicero and on the top was written in a familiar hand "A Lazeroni" I thought John

had sent me a postal.

Terrill a Curtis flyer who flew in Dallas when I was there came back with me xx but they are going
soon back up to Mass. their home. Ill be gone too pretty soon so I Should Worry.
