1 The New Life meeting was very interesting. I wanted you to have been
2there. I leave for Shanklin in the Isle of Wight next Friday. I shall
3remain here for five months. I should like to have one talk more with
4you before I leave. Could you come on Sunday evening I can’t take up
5the police question properly now; it would cost me too much. I must
6wait till I have my other work off my hand.
