On Empress of Scotland Airmail Stationery
November 22, 1955
Dear Dad & Russ,
Just finished a sirloin steak and thought I’d drop you a line. Believe me, the Chateau Laurier has nothing on the Empress of Scotland.
We had life-jacket drill this morning. No young people on board at all so I rented a deck chair and am spending my time reading Greek mythology. Wonderful rest anyways. I have B-11 and the boat is not very crowded.
Had a wonderful send-off with Bill [Glenn], Sylvia [Tysick], and Penny [?] last night, and Bill and Penny were down on the wharf to wave at 8 o’clock this morning. Very nice!
Guess what? I forgot my blue raincoat! And me bound for London at that. Will you please get it ready to send to me as soon as I write saying I’ve arrived in Bonn?
Will drop you a card from London or Liverpool.
