1I sent one note to your home address & send this to the Hospital. Are
2you going to the opera this tomorrow evening (Friday) I am making no
3engagements this week because I thought you would be coming this
4evening & perhaps tomorrow. Come on Sat evening if you care to & have
5nothing else to do, but let me know.
7I think the Flying Dutchman will be very good.
9My head is too bad to scribble much & I am going down to the Oxford
10where Dr. Aveling is waiting for us.
