3Dear Laddie

5I went to that ^Norman Angel^ dinner last night. You would have enjoyed
6it: I wished so you were there. It was so out of the common Lady
7Barlow sat next me – such a most sweet & lovable little woman. I
8promised to let her know when you return to London. I’ll tell you
9about the meeting. I’m very unfit dear almost like in Africa: but
10I’ll try to get my little bit of packing done & leave by Thursday
11^Wednesday^, some times Ive a foolish feeling that if I simply get to
12Nauheim I’ll be better If I hope you are resting & that the weathers
13nice Lady Barlow handed me the enclosed when we said good bye.

15Your stupid little sister
