5My dear old Man
7I’m thinking so much of you & Fan. Sir Graham Green would be able to
8give news of the boat as soon as any one. I had to walk about two
9hours this morning in the snow to find a taxi to bring me here.
11I feel quite grand with my sittingroom here. You must come & see me
12some day if you have a minute to spare. The air is much better here
13than in the other little room. We have a telephone in the house which
14is a great comfort. The landladys name is Smith, if ever you or Fan
15want to telephone.
17Good night dear. I wonder if your boy is on the waves already. I
18hardly think so.
22This place is close to Marble Arch, at the bottom of Edgware ^Road^
