1 9 Blandford Sq
3 Dear Miss Sharpe
5 Will you send the enclosed to Miss E-. I’ve forgotten her address.
7 I couldn’t answer your long interesting letter because I was so good
8for nothing. The answer I would like to give it would be to introduce
9you to Carpenter, then you would understand him, & I expect find that
10you & her he really sympathized a great deal. Your idea of undressed
11walls with pictures on them is also my ideal of the beautiful in a
12house. I am always picturing my ideal room & how I would furnish it!
14 Visitors – no time for more

18 I am always at home on Friday from 4 to 7 be so glad if you would come
19& see me then.
