7Dear Laddie
9Please return me that little Allegory. I am trying to get it published
10in the Fortnightly & in America, but don’t hope to succeed. I wonder
11if when the writer of the enclosed note speaks of my brother her he
12means you or Cron!
14I am quite haunted by our chess problem. I think one must cripple that
15Castle but how, without losing a move!
17Be sure dear to tell me if you have any news of Ol or of Plum.
19Your small sister
The enclosed note is no longer attached. For the 'little allegory', see: "Who Knocks at the Door?" Fortnightly Review November 1916, pp.641-5; it also appears in Stories, Dreams and Allegories.
