Well, you had better both come in tomorrow morning and call for me -

You Say at about 10 - or half past -

You can show me Dublin which seems to me wonderful - I am delighted with it already - and we will breakfast at 12 - and afterwards go on to Craigie or Sutton -

[p. 2] What do you say Major? and Miss Frank[3]? In any case I shall wait for you - -

If you think 10. early and would prefer 12 - say so in the telegram that you might send me the first thing "any way" -

I shall be delighted to see you Ma'am!

and so à demain

The General

If by chance I should have wandered out you would wait for me - The place is full of people who sit about the hall and are amusing! -
