1 Dear,
3 I hope you are feeling quite strong & yourself again. Is there no
4chance of your coming here. I am living in one little room in a side
5street near Oxford Street, but am very happy here. I am trying some
6electric treatment which seems doing me much good. Dot & Ursula came
7over from France today for a 14 days holiday.
9 Much love to you & good wishes to you all for the new year
