Dear Ester and Joshua,
Av and I are absolutely delighted that your plans for visiting Scotland are definite and that we shall have the fun of escorting you both to the west coast. I hope to goodness that you have taken it for granted that it would be all right and that we would be expecting you, we are feeling guilty about not replying to your letter sooner, forgetting that you would not take it all for fixed, as we have --
My parents are pleased that you are thinking of visiting them in Skye with us, Dad loves showing the place off and is full of information

and stories, but if there was any hitch in your time table you might like to go less far afield and Av's parents would love to entertain you at Canadale House in Hintyre[?] which is a bit more civilised but still typically west highland.
There is plenty of room in our flat here for you to stay, so just turn up absolutely any time at all -- how nice it will be.
Lorna seems to have said everything. We are both looking forward to seeing you again very much.
I'm afraid Seymour had already departed towards Yugoslavia when your letter arrived.
Yours,
Avrion and Lorna
