Excerpt from Message

Dearest Aunt Celeste If my replacement arrives on time - if the weather is good on the 29th - and if all goes as planned I should be in San Diego for a couple of hours on 30 July around the beginning of the afternoon - I will do my very best to come and give you a great big kiss on my way home. Hope everything goes as planned Aubrey
