'Aug. 20. 99.'
This experiment has failed! -
I bring away with me nothing!! - though in looking for it I have very nearly made myself ill again - -
And I have lost lots of things. -
Among them I am now missing Brenzels new black pair - Did I leave them at Pourville? Wire to Garlants yes or no -
You know I believe they bag every thing at that hotel! -
I am getting back to you again - You may expect me by tuesday or Wednesday -
the General -
