My dear Vivian -
Many thanks for your last note - I suppose you are still in the country, as you have not given me your town address -
By this time doubtless the Guardian has printed the Interview - Will you not send me a couple of copies of the paper - I am afraid we couldn't possibly get it here.
As I told you, the photograph had gone on to the Editor some days before - He ought to have had it last Friday or Saturday -
When do you go to town? -
[p. 2] What a horrible business this end of Oscar! - and the squalid details of cell, and prison van - and the rest of it - !
Write me a line -
