If you can play the game like Colonel Bogey , But never say I SHOULD be playing Par .

Now that I am on my feet again , I want to express my sincere appreciation of your kindness in the matter—for you sure did help a man who was completely down and out . I feel that it is my duty to w-ite you the facts in this matter as I am sure , being so busy a man , you may not have detailed knowledge of my case .
