Dear Sir,

I called on Mr H. G. Awdry <1> yesterday after I saw you – he assured me that he knew nothing about the Bridges except that he understood from Mr Ward <2> that the sites had been fixed on by Mr Little and himself – he promised to write to Mr Ward and let me have his reply I have been unable to see Mr Little to-day but will endeavor to do so tomorrow and request him to see you before you leave home –

Will it not be better to get the Exchange Deeds signed by Mr Mansel Talbot? <3>

I am dear SirYour obliged Sert
West Awdry
