My Dear Craig:-
    Many thanks for your kind letter of February 3rd. forwarded on from the 20th Century Fox Studios. We very much appreciate your interest & effort in writing a sketch for us & regret to have to return same herewith, as you are aware, on our last appearance in England we had a very similar plot, that, of being forced to rob a house. So of course we don't wish to repeat a same idea on our next visit. However, if you have any other thoughts on a vehicle for us, we shall be pleased & interested to hear from you.
    With regards & best wishes always,
                Sincerely Yours:-
Stan Laurel Signature                 LAUREL & HARDY.

My Dear Charles:-
    Thanks for yours of the 8th.inst. with interesting enclosures. It was nice to hear from you again & to know that all was well with you.
    I very much appreciate your loyalty as a L&H Fan, but frankly I think you are crazy to spend all the time & effort to see an old old picture when you can see them so often at home on TV. They have been running here once a week for over three years & still continue under different sponsorship. You could get information on this matter from your nearest TV Station, as I understand our series also runs quite a bit in the East.
    We had a very successful tour of the British Isles for nine months & expect to return next Oct. Pleased to tell you, my health has great1y improved & back to my normal weight again (155 LBS.) so am in good shape to carry on again. (Poor Public)
    All for now Charles, nothing exciting to tell you- just resting & taking it easy & enjoying being back home for a while.
    With kindest regards & every good wish,
                Sincerely yours:-
Stan Laurel Signature                 STAN LAUREL.

Dear Teddy and Gertie Desmond:-
    The Singapore deal is off, conditions don't look so good down there & we don't want to get in the middle of anything. It looks now we will return to England again in October.
    Bye & God Bless.
