1 9 Porchester Terrace
2 about Oct.1918.
4 Thanks for sending me that nice note. Is there any special work the
5women are doing now? Are you having any interesting meetings? I am a
6little better again, and might be able to go to some. One loses all
7touch with the outer world lying here. The great outcome of the future
8human race once can see clearly enough, but it will be through seas of
9blood and sorrow that humanity will slowly wake up to the truth. I
10hope I shall see you some day before long. Isn’t there a strange
11"silence over everything?
