Dear Nan and Pap,

Arrived at Isle of Wight about 2 with all the Hippies. We are only staying for a few days. I am writing this card while Harry is asleep he is tired out after the journey. I think it was the meal he has just had, steak, 2 eggs, chips [peas?] and tomatoes.

See you soon

Yvonne and Harry xxxxxxxx

[The reference, of course, is to the Isle of Wight free festival at which Bob Dylan made his comeback after a motorcycle accident some years before. It took place 29-31 August 1969 at Woodside Bay near Ryde.]
