Today was the day for cousins. It is Roy’s birthday. He’s 72 years old – the baby of the family. There was a party in the house of his brother (aged 93) in Truro. But John was missing. He never comes to Cornwall any more. Did anyone receive a Christmas card from John in December? That was the question on our lips. But nobody at all has had either a card or a letter. What to do? Francis will write a letter to his address in Bristol. (John is not the first cousin to go missing.) Sometimes someone moves house without a single word to relatives. Anyway it was a very good party. There was news of the cousins in Australia. The weather there is too hot (40 degrees at midday).
