Dear Rose -
Two words -
don't let your procedings [sic] with the landlord Mr. Keene, go farther than asking the question - So that even if answered in the affirmative, I may still be at liberty to take his house or not - I mean that I do not wish to commit myself, as in the mean time something else may prove more desirable - I am not sure that I explained this, this morning [p. 2] and write now -
With many thanks
'1' written in another hand at the top of p. 1.
