Beloved

Such a scrubby little line I sent e to greet e in the morning {1}; but I think I wd tell you its story. A rush of work, a great hurry to catch the train, but dear love to my own sweetheart.

It is jolly to be up here—everything is unchanged: the place is like the Almighty, it seems; Change & decay in all around I see—O thou who changest not .… {2} Echos have died away: daily papers are not—Chinese Labour has not served to ruffle the calm waters of the University world.

But O Patz your laddie boy thinks of you & wishes you a sweet time & then on Monday we meet again!

I am just going to Franks rooms but anticipating I am sure I may send his love with mine; but perhaps tht† is a kind of sending you don’t like; isn’t it now?

Arms round

Your own
Silly Billy

Love to May & Brer Jack

Darling

I have been longing for the time to come when I should be free to be able to write to you—not tht† I have any news to tell you but simply because I want to write to you so much & tell you how I love you.

You see Girlie you are so much more than all the other things in my life[—]you are the great rest, you are the great solvent in which all the other things of life become fluid. You are the great Ocean into which I flow, you you darling—ah I seem to understand sometimes the full measure of the divine law of the world that permeates all our being, and by that law I need you absolutely not merely to construct or achieve but simply to be.

Beloved it is difficult to tell my soul-thought in words & yet I know you will understand.

Beloved you said yesterday that you had once a store of wisdom & you had shared it with me, & now you needed to go & gather a further store lest haply you should be left behind: beloved I know that the thought which lay behind your words was true because your heart is so great & strong & beautiful, & yet the words are only true in part to me for though you have shared with me your store of wisdom, you are ever in front of me. And the very travail of your being, for which I reverence you, is the outward & visible sign of that union of you dear woman life with the Earth, with Nature, & with th† Holy Spirit which places you forever as my umbilical cord to keep me living.

Sweetheart the words upon paper will not reveal to you: but behind them is the loving heart of your laddie & the living fingers who know the tenderness & the delight of your being.

And I am just yours dependent on you for being

Woman

Man-Baby

So you will expect “a word of welcome from you boy to await you”—thts† what you said last night—Ah but your boy had it in his heart before tht†; you don’t suppose tht† when his Mums goes away, the laddie doesn’t make all preparations: you don’t suppose he doesn’t care do you girlie. Why course he does & a great hug “prevents” e & follows e.

“Mena House”. May it be a sweet place to e, little one, while you are there, and a dear memory afterwards. Here awaits your laddie’s Welcome.

Welcome girlie to Egypt, welcome to all the entrancing wonders of the East, & to the mysteries of ages, to the records of thousands of years of human thought & human toil & human love.

May this land hold for you joys & happiness & full delight till laddie comes himself to you and then just more still.

His heart is in your keeping & his life is just yours you darling.

Kiss Marie & Hetty for me & drink my health to night in the very best.

One more great hug

Boy
