7Dear old Man
9I hope you & Dot are having a good time with the boy. I wonder if he
10noticed that the Hotel at Milan in Italy – the Metrapol – which
11was destroyed by the mob the other day was the one at which he & I
12stayed. The What a long time ago that seems & how beautiful the world
13was then.
15I am feeling much better since the cold weather came back. Its the
16heat curls me up.
18I had a long walk in the other day right from Kensington Gardens to
19Marble Arch & back. I found a path down the centre where not many
20people go, & it was quite lovely.
22I spend all my substance – not in riotous living – but in driving
23about on the top of omnibuses & trams.
25I wish Fan could come before Oliver goes.
27Give my love to him.
28“Alles ten besten”
