as for Bill Burke and his wife. I certainly will get in touch with her. It wasn't so much that the others fizzled it just was that there was not the community of interests with the kids. Even if Burke's wife does not mean a continued friendship I am always interested in people and will be so glad to see her. And your funny story of Joe Gille's reminds me of Pearl Isreal [illegible] laugh - do you remember it? No I don't know Julie Kramer who you mention as a friend of Bill Burke - but it may well be that she is in my office. I haven't learned everybody's name as yet. Of course if she is active in the union, I should have knows her but she is probably in W.C. 84 and adjutant office to mine covering Red Hook. Thank you, Thank you for your memories of 5/24
