3 Dear dear Friends
5 The clouds are closing in about us. I seem to be walking about all the
6time with a knife somewhere in my left side. I have just had a cable
7from the New York journal asking if I will be war correspondent for
8that paper for £110 a month. If I can only get well enough to go up I
9shall take it. I will write ^will wire^ & let you know my movements;
10till I leave ^do^ address here.
