Dear Dr & Mrs Jones,
I hope you are still
coming to England next
week. I shall be here
until the morning of
Sept. 1-- a good day to leave
since it is a Bank Holiday.
Please call me at Crosby
Hall if you have a chance.
Also, I would like for
you to have a meal here
7 see the Hall if at all
possible. By the way was
at University College on Friday
& saw Flinders Petrie Collection
including limestone head of Narmer (!).

Nuffield College, Oxford

Dear F & R--
One more week to go
& we return home. It
has been pleasant, but a
bit tiring since we have
jumped to High Wycombe,
back to London, & now Oxford.
We return to London Mon.
There's a lot of material here--
More than we can possibly
cover. We hope everything
has you well at home.

Lady on the White Horse, Banbury.

Ride a cock horse to Banbury Cross,
To see a fine lady on a white horse,
With rings on her fingers and bells on her toes,
She shall have music wherever she goes.
