LAUREL AND HARDY LETTERHEAD - TYPEWRITTEN
April 2nd. '33.
My Dear Bennie [Barron]:-
Many thanks for yours to hand.
Certainly appreciate your kind enquiry. Yes we are all safe thank God, it was a terrible experience, but we were lucky enough to be out of the quake area where all the damage was done. I never hope to go through another one. We are all still having slight tremors, it is a weird feeling, & makes you a nervous wreck - I jump at the least sound. The studio is closing now till June 1st. So am going to have a well earned rest, sorry I have'nt time to come over to England, but maybe next year. Not much news to tell you, so will close. Again many thanks for your kind thoughts. Trust all is well & happy with you & yours.
Your old Pal:-
