Columbia University, Avery Architectural and Fine Arts Library, Peter Blake Papers
Blake has been sent by the U.S. Army to Fort Belvoir, Virginia, despite being assigned to Massachusetts. He is still waiting for the letter the Russells sent to him to be forwarded, but reports that he is doing better than the last one he sent and hopes he didn't worry them. He mentions, Raoul Mitchell, who is helping him to keep his sanity, and a number of other references to missing Europe and not enjoying the army, but regularly also insists he's okay.
Blake asks if Conrad is taller and whether Kate is out of her cast "and very beautiful". He asks if they have Ann Fremantle's address as he is only 25 miles from Washington. Finally, he asks Peter to tell Pam he loves her.
