My dear Lavery -
I am sorry to know that you also are laid up with this awful fog in the throat!
Mind you run no risks - Don't dream of going out -
I was not allowed at the Studio today - and indeed am not to be permitted to leave this Inn this week - and the Doctor wants me [p. 2] to go to Cornwall -
And now I cannot find a long letter that Tuke most kindly wrote to me - and that I lost immediately & before I had time to read it!! -
Do write him a line and tell him how distressed I am - Of course the letter is not really lost - only too carefully set aside for proper perusal!
I do wish I knew what he was telling me!
