1Dear Will,
3Don’t telephone to me to care Einart, they naturally don’t like
4the trouble of coming over with the telephone message. Send a wire if
5theres ever need to let me know anything quickly.
6My address is
731 The Park
9that’s enough nothing else
11Love to you
14Alice Corthorn has sent on ten letters to me to the wrong address &
15they have all got lost
. I hope there was none from you or Ollie.
17I begged her not to send any letters for me on but to keep them till I
18came for them. She means so well but she’s an impossible person.
20Our boy is never out of my thoughts.
