1 Sat morning
3 Dear Mr Pearson
5 I did not tell you in yesterday’s note that I wrote on Thursday to
6^asking^ Mrs Cobb no more to write to me or to come & see me. Perhaps I
7ought to have done so, but I knew you would hear it from herself.
9 //I am unable to understand Mrs Cobb.
11 If you feel that this step relations makes a change in our relations
12necessary or necessitates my leaving the club, speak frankly.
14 Yours
15 O.S.
