1New College,
5Dear Con,
7Your letter was very sweet. Did you get the two photographs I sent you.
8 Please return them. You can tell your dear mother what I told you,

11written about in the papers. Good bye Con. I shall sleep Sat Friday
12night at Morleys Hotel Trafalgar Sq. to be ready to start by the 11.40
13for South-ampton on Saturday. If I could see your face, if it were
14nothing more, before I sailed I should be glad
