MY DEAR JOE —
The telegram is already gone, and I expect you will fill all arrangements there.
The Dak bungalows en route to Mayavati provide no food, nor have they cooks.
Provisions have to be taken at Kathgodam and arrangements made.
If you find any difficulty, go straight to Almora and make your arrangements at leisure. The Dak bungalows on the way to Almora provide food and in Almora there is a nice Dak bungalow.
Hoping everything will come your way, as it always does — (except Grandpa’s* health).
I like Mr. [Tokuno] Oda much — he means business.
