Dear Mr Hanson

Please write the usual letter to these people[4] -

Have you found any more studios? You might go and ask Rideout[5] if he has any more houses on Cheyne. Walk to let - and when you are looking for Studios [p. 2] you might keep your eyes open for houses look at the Terrace High Street Kensington - there might be something there -

Yours very sincerely

Beatrix Whistler.
