4 My dear Mr Pearson

6 If possible I shall be there on the 9th. My life is such a whirl, (Did
7you ever try for a little while to slip between surfaces with out
8piercing them?) that I am not sure I shall have time for the paper. If
9you can wait a day or two till I am settled in my new quarters I will
10write & let you know. But if there is any other woman you think would
11do it well, you had best write to her. If I did write I should write
12quite frankly. More & more I see clearly that in our minds, & in our
13intercourse with our fellow men there should be no corner of which we
14say, "Here the light of day must not come."
