I will come with the greatest pleasure dear Mrs Pennell, & very nice it is of you to ask me - But of course you must not wait - just begin without me - for it is morally impossible that I should get there at 7.30 - as I am hard at work - I will tell them all about the farm - though I forget the name - They will have no difficulty in finding it

Always sincerely
