1Monday afternoon
3My Havelock.
5I want just to say a word because I feel so tender to. Oh it is so
6sweet that you are coming again tomorrow it would be so sad if you
7weren’t. I will scribble hard that my mind may know it is right to be
8happy with you. We might go by train & come back by river. I feel so
9right close up to you, & I want to kiss you my old comrade. Good bye
13Moore couldn’t come he had gone to Brighton but Marston came & Eleanor.
15Give my love to dear old Louie, I want to see her very much.
