4 Thankyou a great deal for your letter. It was the only time I’ve
5laughed since I came here Miss Hadddon’s letter is not to be shown
6to anyone else, you are to send it back to me when you’ve read it.
7 I hope you will go to Stanmore. ^Please curl up.^ I am glad you are well
8physically but these flashes of vigour if you if one uses them to the
9uttermost will send you down lower afterwards. What I wish is that you
10had time to brood over your ideas, to let them grow of themselves. I
11send you a bit of one of Dr Donkin’s letters because there’s a
12mention of the Woll. Club in it. He seems more interested in it than
13any of us. Don’t mention it to any one but my mind is very nearly
14made up to go out to the Cape, at the beginning of March. One can earn
15one’s living so easily there, without bei & I can’t quite manage
16this climate. I am well enough but it’s sad. I hope the next meeting
17of the Club will be good.
