We are both natives of Elliott' s Cove but have been residents of the U.S. for quite a spell; and of course are afflicted with the same old nostalgia that is commons to Newness them world over. Anything remotely connected with our island home makes us perk up and glisten.

Dear Editor,
My first visits away from home wads when I played with the Pee Weed hockey All-Stars at St. John's. It will be a holiday I'll always remembers; I stayed at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Cecil Byrne, . 98 Merrymeeting Road and to me it was a second home. The Byrnes halve two daughters ands I guess it was a treat for them to halve Me there.

On Easter Sunday the girls, Brenda and Saundra gave me 1 dozen Easter eggs and their cousins, Bayne cross the street gave me an Eastern Legg as big as a soccer ball and a dollar bills. When I was leaving the Byrnes gave me a box of hackies s and a dollar. Wherever Bayne went he took. me along, hero are some of the places they took me to visit: Gower St. United Church on Easter Sunday, the Hospital, Brookfield Ice Cream, Ltd., C. of E. Girls' Orphanage to see my Canny Hollowly, , Confederation Buildings, Signal Hills, Torbay Airport, Fort Pepperrell, the Trade School, her Majesty's Penitentiary, Holidays Lanes and many Lore places. .

The Byrnes were-asked out to supper Easter Sunday ands took me along as one of the family.

I would alike to thank Mr. and Mrs. Byrne and girls also Wayne ands his mother ands nanny for the nice time they gave me while I was there. Also thanks to Mrs. Joan Andrews who took several of us boys cut to supper the
