8 I'm longing to see you. I shall go up to London tomorrow afternoon; my
9address will be 61 Chester Sq, W. have you got those rooms Miss
10Conybeare
spoke of? If you write to Mrs Fuller's niece Mrs [wordspace]
11the Infirmary, Paddington, she will give you the name of the good
12boarding house in Wimpole St. I think the no. is 33 but am not sure.
13Isn't it glorious weather. My darling I do hope you will not have such
14a bad time. We must go up to Cambridge some time together. I am going
15to look for rooms in London. If I can't find any I feel I can work in
16I shall have to go abroad soon. I am a bit better, & I feel life is
17too short to waste the small
18
19^working time. I shall tell you where I shall be on Tuesday & perhaps
20we can go to the Academy together. It will be so lovely when you have
21moved into town. I long to see the little ones. It would be nice if I
22could get a bedroom near yours.
