My dear Nellie -

I have not been well lately - and rather wearied - not to say worried - -

If I may, I will come and dine on Sunday next - day after tomorrow - that I may see you before I go off to Paris again for a while -

[p. 2] Write a line & say if half past 7. is the right time -

I am staying at
Garlants Hotel.
Suffolk Street
Pall Mall.

With kindest regards to you all -

J McN W.
