[p.1 recto]

Oct 14

My dear Tom.

I do wish you would let me know your address!! I wrote — I admit I was a fool — to 15 Cheyne Walk instead of Gardens & so have got the letter back in the dead letter post. But having re-read it I shall not send it again! It was to thank you very much for the two books which I am very glad [p.1 verso]indeed to have.

I am taking a Cuala Sale in London Nov 2-7George Yeats was still in charge of the embroidery section of Cuala Industries, whose work was shown at various sales in Englandnote — Will you dine with me at Gennaro'sGennaro's Italian restaurant in New Compton Streetnote on Tuesday 8th unless something else crops up for you to do — at 7 (I shall want to come straight on from the sale which ends at 6.30) We might go to a picture afterwards. I shall be at Three Arts Club Marylebone RoadInstead, she stayed at the Knightsbridge Hotelnote. Nasty but cheap. I go down for the week-end of Nov 7 to see my motherGeorge Yeats's mother E.E. Tucker and her husband Henry had moved to Sidmouth in 1922note who hasnt been at all well & very much upset by the death — flying — of a favorite nephew. William Langdon Spurway, only son of George Yeats's aunt Ghita Spurway, was killed in a flying accident in September 1925 when he was only 24note

All well here.
