2I was taken ill with malaria & was laid up for a month. I went over, to recuperate in Ireland & am now in Wales although the letter bears my Liverpool address.I have only just developed & printed those photographs I took & am sorry they are not as good as they might have been still I think they give3a good idea of the tree & I enclose four prints. Let me know if you want the negatives & I will post them to you.Thanks you very much for the Book "Stickeen" safely to hand. I shall always prize it in memory of our short "Baobab Expedition" I have not yet read it. Well I am booked up for another spell of 2 or 3 years in Uganda
