Uncle Harold’s Letter

My Dear Frankie,

Some time ago, nearly two weeks, you sent me a postal card saying you were going to write to me that night but unfortunately, up to this date, no letter has come to hand. If someone asks you to accompany them on a stroll or a theatre engagement on a certain night and you promised you would, but didn’t, what is the difference between the two? It took three letters from me to extract the last one you sent, and in it you gave the excuse that you were helping your mother…”

Special thanks to Lyjah Mellor
