My Dear Tuer

Here is the last of the Guttersnipe 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
