Wulfe, we’ll just have to wait and see about the balloon. I wouldn’t put too much faith in the Einie. Too far behind enemy lines. You just wait and give good ol’ Fullard Bros some time. They will soon start knocking those Fokkers and later Albatroses out of the sky, probably making it a competition between themselves. I am sure of it. Having a Nieuport under your seat will make sure of that.
Lou, Swany should realize that all these things he’s fretting about are nothing compared to a brace of Eindekkers on his tail, well except that part with Georgette maybe. That will be a tough nut to crack. And whatever he does, do not let him speak Norwegian around her. Accents seem to turn her on. Doesn’t she have a pet fish?

"Take the cylinder out of my kidneys,
The connecting rod out of my brain, my brain,
From out of my arse take the camshaft,
And assemble the engine again."
