NO LETTERHEAD - 25406-1/2 Malibu Rd., Malibu, CA - HANDWRITTEN
I moved into an apartment right on the beach, so am looking forward to having a wonderful change living like a beachcomber—in nautical terms, a bum!
Thanks Elmer [Westover] for your kind remembrance - you timed it pretty close - my B'day is on the 16th!-
Note change of address - I rented our house & moved into an apartment which is right on the beach, so am looking forward to having a wonderful change, living like a beachcomber! - in nautical terms a BUM.!! Nothing to do but fish, swim - eat & sleep. It should be easy to take - at least its better than working!
We expect to move in June 22nd. The apts. are just finished building & have to be furnished yet.
All for now Elmer. Thanks again for the nice card - much appreciated.
Trust alls well with you.
Bye & all the best.

Dear Gary [Arnold]:-
Thanks yours 7th.inst.
Enclosed is a picture for Miss Janice Mastro. Was surprised to note you had'nt heard from my friend Mr Andy Wade, he's generally a very prompt correspondent. Maybe he's on a vacation - I would suggest you drop him a card, the address again is 6409, Bayshore Blvd. Tampa. Florida.
My last letter from him was dated May 25th.(ult) next time I write him, I'll mention re his not answering you.
You will notice my new address, I rented my house & have moved into an apartment which is right on the beach in Malibu for a few months.
Hope alls well with you Gary, & the club is coming along Ok.
My regards to you all.
Dear Gary [Arnold], Stan Laurel wrote and told me that you wanted to learn where you could obtain old Laurel & Hardy movie stills. Many places in New York City and Atlanta, Georgia sell used stills. Bruce Enterprises, in NYC, has a wide assortment, but they charge 50¢ each for stills from movies made prior to 1950. Astor Pictures Company now manages four of the old L&H features, and they will sell you brand new stills for 15¢ each. At present, I do not have the address of their New York office. When I find it, I will send it to you. Enclosed you will find some stills that I thought you might like to have. Sincerely yours, Andy Wade. —June 19, 1957
