8Dear Mrs Moscheles
9
10Mrs Greene & I did so enjoy the afternoon with you.
11
12Could you give me the name & address of that interesting actress in
13the black dress. I think she said it was ‘Hanburg’ but am not sure. I
14want to ask her to tea some afternoon.
15
16I did not like to trouble your dear husband to talk much as he looked
17so frail. How wonderfully he keeps the clear blue light in his eyes,
18as clear as a child’s. “Blessed are the pure in heart” they make me
19think.
20
21I am going to spend the week end with the Schutzes, in their country
22cottage.

24Yours with love & thanks for a delightful afternoon
