Transcript: 

Your existence helps me.
Well I have no news for you because it is all sad and troublesome and while it is interesting you might think I was moaning.
Dear Father Time will fix it.
I await inspiration.
I told you I rec'd 'Flights of Fancy' and thanks tons. They are swell even though I can't manage them yet owing to shortage of piano and in the case of Moon Haze (which I like) shortage of ability. Or shall I say 'practice'.
Yes. Practice. One can accomplish anything if you put pressure to bear, persevere and practice. But I just can't doo [sic] that without said piano! Curse -- something.
Anyway I enjoy reading them.
I have a quarter finished composition on Aerial Flight which I cannot proceed with either.
'The Flight of the Grumble Me" I shall call it I guess.
Ruth tells me you're getting a boost in Musical Forum. Good Show!
I'm getting plenty of boosts these days but all over the wrong stuff.
The work which is in the same class as 'Memorial' is not being shown. I'm furious.
