RUBBER STAMP - 1111 Franklin St., Santa Monica, CA - TYPEWRITTEN EXCERPT
Dear Jack [McCabe],
Re the 'Fig-Bar,' we used that expression in writing a scene in a script, for instance, Babe is caught doing something he should'nt do, & becomes embarrassed, then trying to cover up he gives a sweet coy angelic look, waves his tie, twiddles his fingers & exits. So, we saved time in writing description of the scene by just saying Babe does a fig bar & exits.

My Dear Trixie [Wyatt]-
Sorry dear so long in reply to your letters - fact is I have been ill & spent several weeks in hospital taking treatments for High blood pressure which caused a slight stroke of my left arm & leg & was not allowed to attend to my correspondence - however am back home again & feeling better & able to get around a bit with a crutch. Dr. says I shall be back to normal again in a few weeks. I have your new note paper, & will have a friend of mine send it to you in a couple of days. I will get the Doll for you later on Trixie as soon as I am able to get out, I am of course very weak & taking exercises every day to get my strength back. Not much more to tell you dear - Eda sends her love - she has had a trying time taking care of everything & is working hard. I will write you again soon. Bye dear - hope you are well & happy.
My love to Benny & Jack - hope you all had a nice time.
