Dear Mr. Dowdeswell -
I really must have twenty pounds - and by Saturday morning at latest -
Can you let me have a cheque for that sum? Otherwise I must go off and leave my work again -
You see I promised to return what was loaned to me the other day - and [p. 2] I daren't go to lunch with you or I should do no more work 'the day'! -
Do write at once -
454. Fulham Road -
Dated by address and signature.
