1 Dear EC.
3 I shall be going down to Surrey to look for a tiny cottage at Dorking
4or Woking or some such place. If I am early in the morning to St
5Pancras could you perhaps meet me there? We might go & have lunch
6together somewhere, & I might then go on my way? Which days would you
7be free? Most days? Because I can’t arrange long before on account
8of perhaps not being up to it when the time comes.
10 O.S.
12 You would love Mrs Bland very much. She’s quite genuine. She wants
13to come again & bring all her children. I haven’t told anyone you
14were here except Alice & she has orders not to mention it. Do you know,
15 I don’t feel a bit that horror of London now I know you are there?
