Dear Lela-- 1

Lee came to see us a week ago. We all liked him very much--and especially since he didn't complain at all about his own situation but did put in a word for Keith whenever he got a chance. He says he thinks Keith ought to get a break in regard to schooling, and also that Keith is probably carrying a pretty heavy burden right now, considering his health. I don't know whether Keith's had an examination or not, but Lee has a notion he may be anemic, and it's quite possible, for both Quentin and Terry have had that trouble and even when boys look big and healthy they can be short of hemoglobin. --That isn't what I was going to say, however. I just want you to know that it wasn't because we were disappointed that Kenneth didn't try to keep Keith in Buffalo this year. It was because Anderson House didn't make any money, and I can't promise to do anything about it either, unless Key Largo goes well. If it does I'll help Keith to go back to Buffalo--or some college--next semester. Maybe you and Dan can help with it, though I know you have a thousand things to do with your money. --I just wanted Keith to know this so he wouldn't feel there was no way out.

Love to you all

Maybe I'll see you in Buffalo. There will be seats if you come-- 2
