5Dear Havelock I suppose Edith will be sailing today. I do hope she
6felt better before she left, I felt very anxious about her: & about
7you too. Edith tells me you’ve had special worries – though she
8didn’t tell me what; & you do look depressed & tired. I hope the
9spring weather will pick you up. It’s very beautiful lifegiving air
10here, but I shall be glad to be back in London on the evening of the
1123rd. My brother Will comes in about 2 weeks. Oh I am so thankful to
12be out of Florence.
14Good bye dear
