8 I wrote to you to the Hampstead address Edward Carpenter gave me to
9ask if you could come & see me but the letter was returned as not
10known at that address. I don't know if you are far from this. This
11house is near Golders Green about half way down from the Bull & Bush.
12Its close to Golders Green station about 4 turning off on the right
13side as you walk up from Golders Green station towards the top of
14Hampstead where the ponds are & Jack Straws Castle. If you could come
15& see me I would be so glad The evening would do. I much wish to have
16a talk with you.
