Miss Penny Peace,
c/o Dominion Securities Corporation Ltd.,
6 Austin Friars,
Thank you for your letter of August 9th. I am taking the easy way out and dictating my reply. Not too intimate, but nevertheless convenient.
I am very glad things worked out well for you, and that they were able to give you something to do with us in London. They are a good crew there, and Dudley is a wonderful education in himself.
I am very sorry to hear about your marriage plans, but I suppose it is all for the best. The kind of man you really should marry is someone about 15 years older than yourself, and with grey hair, who still has a twinkle left in his eye. I suppose there are one or two people like that around somewhere.
Seriously, I am delighted to hear you have landed on your feet in London, and I appreciate your letter very much indeed.
Please be kind enough to thank Dudley very much for me, for answering my cable about Caulton. I cabled to prevent Caulton accepting a position somewhere else, and I hope he did not think me rude, when I felt sure there was a good reason for the delay.
Once again, best regards, and best wishes for much success in London, and perhaps a romance or two.
