Letter from Gerald Hughes to Donald Crossley CRS/2/2/13
Extent: 1 Letter
Letter dated 8th of July 2005 from Gerald Hughes, addressed to Donald Crossley commenting on how quickly time seems to be passing - before writing about the memory of him and Ted getting ice cream in exchange for helping out and how it was the best ice cream he'd ever tasted. He goes on to write about another memory - when a gas ometer was being removed and how it collapsed and nearly hit a friend. Hughes then writes about his wife's recovery from cancer and is now starting to paint again - before writing about the Ted Hughes centre at the station and suggesting Crossley ask Carol for the 'Iron Man', which he thinks is being kept in a barn in Devon. He finishes the letter asking for sympathy for their cricket team and with a post script about the drought.
