Dearest Mary, Bless you for my birthday letter and photograph which I remember well -- tho had worried it was Kakus (?) & Mrs. Wellesley. Talking of JMB and some of his titled friends, did you see Lady (Nan) Lucas' death, announced this week. It's true I hardly remember her, my now vivid recollection being of her wonder legged mother and his animal at (I think) Auhuinusuidh, I having been carefully witnessed not to stare at his limping etc, rushing to meet him and my otherwise words were "Can I see your wooden leg?" And he had delightfully took me up this bedroom and started to unwrap his leg, but a spare! Do you remember? <br />
