Of course you will have already got from German shop, the "Neue Deutsche Rundschau[3]," whatever that may be -

And if you look in at the office before going to the country, you might tell them to send it on to me at once -

You know it is too bad that an inferior "Ten o'clock[4]" should be going over Gerrmany, when if properly done, I think it would be much esteemed and appreciated -

The man had better in any case explain himself to me - and I think I shall write him a line -

You might come here on Monday afternoon at about 5.
