Dear Mr. Harold Esch:

I am very interested to hear you are compiling a book on Lawn Bowling for circulation in the United States of America, and I feel sure it will be received with much pleasure by all those who take part in the game in your great Country.
During the visit of the British Team (of which I had the honour of being Captain) last year, I was delighted to be informed of the steady growth of the game of Lawn Bowling in America. As I said on many occasions during that memorable Tour, I am confident that before many years have elapsed the Game will be as popular in the United States as it is in the British Isles and the Dominions.
My best wishes go with you in the arduous task you have so cheerfully undertaken.

Yours sincerely,
Ivor B. Thomas
President International Bowling Board

Milwaukee, Wis.
October 20, 1948

My Dear Harold:

I am glad you are publishing a new book on Lawn Bowling from the American standpoint. It is very much needed and should be in the hands of every lawn bowler, especially new members. It will greatly promote the game and I wish you abundant success in this labor of love.

Sincerely yours,
Emmet L. Richardson
Honorary Life President ALBA
