4 Dear Mr Kallenbach
5
6 I hope all is going well with you. I certainly didn't mean to give you
7any advice as to what you should or should not do about interment.
8Personally I think the safest thing for any German in London would be
9for him to be interned.
10
11 I only mentioned writing to Mr Roberts instead of his wife, ifyou did
12want to write to them ^at all^, about food or anything if you were
13interned, ^because I thought^ he would be the one most likely to take
14the trouble to do anything for you not she. ^from what I hear of them.^
15I'm sorry I can't make an appointment about meeting you at Kingston
16because I never know the day before when & where I shall go. I haven't
17been to Hampden Court or Richmond for a long time, but this afternoon
18I am going to Richmond I think.
19
20 I hope your little garden is doing well: & the carpentering getting on.

22 Good bye. Let me know how you are.

24 Yours ever
