Dear Mr Dowdeswell -
Do come tomorrow morning to the Studio on your way to town -
I want much to see you and have a little talk with you -
If you drive over, make your Cabby keep in the King's Road all the way, turning down Waterford Road past the board that warns [p. 2] you of 'No Thoroughfare', and then you get out just opposite the Studio - 454. A. Fulham Road -
I shall be there by 9.30. oclock - and may perhaps go back to Town with you -
Also I want to show you the place itself and various inventions -
