3Dear Laddie

5I am sending this in case you are still at Oberhof. I got here safely
6last night Dorothy is lovely, & the place is beautiful. Such a
7splendid old house. My movement are quite uncertain. I may stay on
8here, or return to Holland & England in a few days I’d like so to be
9in London when there you are there. There are some friends of mine I
10want you so to know. I know you’d love them. Ellis says my form of
11madness is wanting all my friends to know & love all my other friend,
12but I’m sure you’d like Mrs Charlotte Wilson & Mrs Wale – I wish
13you could meet Bob Muirhead & his wife but they are in Scotland.

15Please wire me your movements.
