13awaiting the permission of the man to whom the dedication is made.
15Other portions will be corrected & returned to you with the least
16possible delay as they are received.
18We go to Eastbourne on Monday, to return on Saturday. Our address

25I am also returning, with many thanks, all the cuttings on “The
26Political Situation”, which I have looked through with interest. I
27also return with them the preliminary pages ^of ‘Halket’^ on which
28you will observe some minor (& one very important) corrections.
30Yours very truly,
