My Dear Tuer

    Here is the last of the Gutter snipe drawings and sorry I am to
    leave them! Children of the gutter roam about free and are often
    hungry, but what would one give for such appetites? You and I smoke
    big cigars while they--all too soon, poor little chaps--smoke what
    you and I and others throw away. Sometimes I wonder whether they
    don't lead the happier lives?

                                 Yours always

                                                               Phil May
