10Dot has sailed I enclose addressee card. I also send addressed book
11cover with string inside to tie it with if you will please put Norman
12Angell’s
book inside. I have made up my mind to go up to Hampstead
13next week. I know how busy you are therefore send address card & box
14to save trouble I shall be more get-at-able at Hampstead as far as you
15are con-cerned as the buss passes your office door in Victoria St
16every five minutes which in 25 at Hampstead Heath station & omnibus
17terminous, the Bus is no 24 & goes on to Victoria Station. It will
18really be more easy for me to get about from there than here There is
19only a pretty steep three minutes climb, which however you would not
20feel. Its about as far & steep as from our Hotel at Nauheim to the
