    Toni Lung's reply on the 15th of November, 1965

    "Dear Jacy,

    My father is very impressed with your offer of my fare to come over to you, but he insists on seeing a photo of you and the two ladies together, to demonstrate that you and I would not be together, alone. My father is, how do you say? suspicious person, which is good in a busyness man, but hard as a father.

    So could you send a picture of the three of you, together, please? I am looking forward very much to coming over there to see you. I think that we will get on most well. I have always wanted to see London, which is a big city, and I am curious about you, you are so young to be doing very well in business. My father is impressed with that, too.

    My life is how do you say hum dum, day by day. Now we geishas are learning how to walk into a room by a sort of glide that doesn't awaken the man if he is sleeping, or disturb him if he is working or thinking. It is very boring, but I must learn if I am to be a good hostess and escort for men. We do not do any of those vulgar things like people say we do, it is superior profession in these days.

    Well that is all I can think of to write for you. Please send the photo quickly, the sooner we can be together if that is what you want, I do too. I am looking very forward to seeing you, Jacy.

    Your Japanese girl-friend,

    Toni "

    November 6th 1965. A letter from Jacy Conway in London to Toni Lung

    "Dear Toni,
    I apprecaite it a ton, but You didn't have to send me a greetings card for Guy Fawkes day, it's only an excuse for letting off fireworks, I know you'd be interested so I've included some cuttings, which give you the whole history of Gunpowder, treason and plot.

    You musn't feel too bad that your old man wouldn't give you the fare to come and see me at Christmas, tell you what, though, I made a bomb selling fireworks all last month, enough to pay your fare over, so ask your Dad, if I send you the money, would you come over to spend Christmas and New Years with us?

    You could tell him you'd have plenty of privacy, there is a four bedroom house atteched to this shop that Mum bought for me, there'd even have chaperones, for I pay Mrs Harris and Emily, my two part timers who work in the shop to relive me, by letting them stay rent free, so the four of us can have bloody good nosh-ups over the Holiday, what say?

    The shop is like a gold mine, making Lolly, hand over first - don't know how long it will last, this Labour Government is all at sixes and sevens, threatening to devalue the pound, warning that they may have to impose wages and price controls, fighting with their own unions who are supposed to be on their side, and they've let the merchant navy go on strike, it'll be just like wartime, all over again, a shortage of everything..

    Of course, being politicians, they're blaming the mess all on the previous Tory government, but for some reason, the Labour party dose not seem to have aclue when itcomes to handling lolly. Now I do, so i suppose that makes me a conservative, especially since i intend to vote for them in the next election, which could come any time, soon.

    So be sure to tell your Dad that I'll send you the fare to come over and christmas, stress the chaperone lark, and we'll look after you like a queen.

    Write soon

    Your London Boy friend

    Jacy"
