There will be a further meeting during March to decide the
second itinerary of concert parties.

On Monday of each week I will contact the secretary of the
concert party for the following Wednesday, with a view to making
transport arrangements, also to discuss the Institute in which the
concert should take place.

Thanks are due to all representatives for their co-operation
and Major E. Morgan has asked me to convey his sincere appreciation
of your willingness to provide entertainment for the troops.

Yours Faithfully
