5Thanks for your long interesting letter I agreed entirely with all you
6said. I wonder if this will find you still in the Cape, or if you will
7have started. I arrived here a week ago to day & have had rather a bad
8time. But have got a nice little bedroom now on a 7th floor with a
9most lovely view over Florence from two little windows, a plenty of
10fine clear air & am much better. I have had four treatments from
11Carloni. They certainly affect the circulation most wonderfully, &
12ought to help greatly. The effect is quite wonderful! But one feels
13rather tired after it. I’ll write a real letter next week.
15Love to you
