0019 Dear Stella:
0020 Chester has just telephoned me from Athens to say
0021 that his Greek friend Jean Boras,whom I
0022 think you have met, while driving my car
0023 between Vienna and Kirchstetten colleded with
0024 a Lastwagen and was killed.
0025 Chester is going to Vienna,but he was too
0026 upset for me to find out where he would
0027 stay. I presume in Kirchstetten.
0028 If you can get in touch him and help him
0029 in any way (there are purely practical matters to
0030 be considered,like the car-papers and insurance policy)
0031 I should be most grateful,
0032 love
0033 Wystan,
