At the risk of becoming a nuisance my dear Spuch[3] I am going to ask you to come round to me on Sunday morning! -

I want so much to have a little talk with you - do you think you would look in at about 12 or 1. o'clock [p. 2] to have a little bit of lunch with me - my breakfasts are not yet perfect - or I should say boldly breakfast - or will you come earlier or later - but while there is still light - Write a line, and tell me if this be possible -

Always
