7My dear Bob
9Edward sent me your letter.
11I hope all unreadable will go well with you both, dear lad. That is
12all I can say. I do wish I could see you. I suppose it would be quite
13impossible for you to run over to Paris for a few days when you are in
14London? If you could come & we could have a couple of long talks I
15should be very very glad. I am staying at the above address for a
16month. Do come to Paris if you can Bob. We are about a mile ^& a half^
17beyond the Champs Elysees; have taken rooms in a tiny cottage in the
18same garden in which my friend Nelly Rielly & her husband liv ^have
19their little house^, & it is very sweet & quiet, not at all like being
20in Paris. Do drop me a line or send me a wire to 7 Rue Lemâitre
24if you are able to come. I do want to see you so much Bob.
26I hope I shall see your wife & Waldo some day.
27Yours ever
