5My dear old Man
7Please send me Bill’s address. I want to send him the Xmas card that
8he says only I, Charly, ?Gee & Aunt Kitty send him!
10I am finding the London air a great improvement on Bude.
12I’d not I’m quite of the way of troubling Alice or the child as I live
13entirely in my little room on the top floor, have my “box” here & see
14my friends here, & she’s glad of the money. I never see her unless she
15comes up to see me ^in my room^. In her worried condition its much
16better for her not to be worried with visitors.
18Give my love to Plum Lewis when you write to him, & tell him I hope to
19meet him in London some day. I hope you & Fan have got out for a week
20end. The weather is so fine today
