TELEGRAMS,
DELICIOUS,
LONDON.

GARLANT'S HOTEL,
SUFFOLK STREET,
PALL MALL.

I meant to have got round to [you] today - but it has been one rush - and wild haste from the dawn! -

Of course, mon ami, I shall come down to you on Saturday night - Details as to the journey I had better have again -

Dont you think you might look in tomorrow afternoon - say at about 5.30? - to 6. -

About Thursday - nothing [p. 2] as you know would please me more than dining with you - But I suppose this Bath Club[3] - one of the latest incarnations of the Briton in his discovery of water - will be filled with highly excited Islanders! What do you think? -

Come and tell me about it tomorrow

Always
