My Dear Grandson

Your card conveying good birthday wishes for me, was recd on the day I entered my 73rd year, and I assure you was greatly appreciated. It is exceedingly pleasant to be so kindly remembered. I hope you are succeeding well in your job this summer, although your Mother says you get a little lonesome at times, but that will wear off.  With best wishes for your success, I am

Your Affectionate Grandfather

Alex Maitland
