I have received your telegram and copy of memo to New York – thank you for both.

We had a very good time in Panama and Chile is treating us very well also, with good weather which we are enjoying mostly on the beach We are leaving tomorrow for our farm a little south of here, where will spend about a week. I think we will postpone our return to February 30 – but I will send you a cable confirming our arrival.
