9Dear Friend

11Ill as I am I feel I must come to the Hague for the 28th 29th & 30th.
12I enclose a letter to the Lady to whom I was told to write about
13getting me a room: my heart & chest are very bad & I will not be able
14to attend the meetings unless I can get a warm dry airy room.

16Would you please let me know if the committee have been able to get me
17one as soon as you can.
