Saw McFalls yesterday. he is out of the hospital again has not been paid for some time I gave him 5 Francs untill he gets paid as one cannot have a good time with out money Thank goodness I have plenty of it dont worry. I have 2 English pound besides some French money Tell Lloyd I have not sent anything to him yet. I'll try to soon.
