Dear Oakley,

Many thanks for yours. I was sitting next Maycock who wrote that notice in the Pink ‘Un. He always writes one of ours. You’ll find a capital one in the B.W. which you thoroughly deserve.

So glad you will play for us, let me know solos by return & what fee, better send two solos.

I can put you up for the night if you like at my place with pleasure.

Yours very truly

Clifford Essex

Glad you did not think it cheek my complementing you, but I was so pleased.
