Dear Edouard,

Your name did ring a bell because of the French spelling.I think Muriel had a younger sister and a brother, yourself. I knew Muriel very well because we were both in the same class in Lindsay Girls School.Miss Nagasinghe was one of our form teachers. I think Muriel also had a short spell in the boarding which was very small with only about 21 girls under Miss Van den driesen.Peggy, I think was also there at some time as a day pupil and attended the church in front of the school in Bambalapitiya.// Harold Van Twest, I met at a Royal Thomian match and I think he was at St. Thomas's boarding in M.Lavinia where several of the family attended. He will also remember me from that happy day we spent with our Gray cousins, Jean and Anne at the match.Muriel was very quiet, She will remember Pam Dean, Moira Paulusz, Lorraine Van der Wall etc.In fact, I have her tel. no. if it is the same that Mrs V Driesen sent me as they have a Lindsay Past Pupils Assoc. in Melbourne. I thought of ringing but felt it may have changed since then. I would very much like to contact her if possible for old times sake.
If I can Email you privately, I will give you my address which Mis VDD has because I write to her now and then.
Anne Winter Williams
