5 Dear Alys,

7 Thanks so much for the money. The publisher now has promised to pay
8her at once for the translation she has done, & if he does she'll have
9plenty of money next week, if he doesn't she won't be able to return
10it till October when he pays her surely.

12 I can't get anyone who is quite able to take up & work that new
13society idea yet. Perhaps I will in a few days. I wish Mrs Costelloe
14could find some one. You see both of us are too busy with other things.

16 Thank-you more than I can say for being so ready to help her.
