Dear Little Sid;
Busy as ever with future prospects looking busier.  Still owe you a letter.  Tell mother I am o.k. in health and don't let the guys have a monopoly on the back parlor.  Rec'd a letter from mother yesterday and will answer as soon as possible.  How would you like the Toronto normal?  Some city!  Smiles!!!
