Excellent News. My dear friend Hans Hockler - who incidentally fenced for Heidelberg University in 1931 - is acting as an envoy and interpreter whilst actively attempting to effect the release of dear Miss Allie Astell from the ruthless clutches of the so called 'Spa' in Baden Baden.
Just received the God awful news that, while ensconced in Baden Baden, Miss Allie Astell has undergone a treament administered by the infamous Frau Gruber that can be best described as barbaric and somewhat unsavoury to boot. My thoughts are with my erstwhile companion at this most difficult time. I hope and suggest that she keeps her back to the wall and maintains a stiff upper lip regardless. What Ho! Fawcett
