Tuesday afternoon.

Thank you for your letters dearest[—]am interested in your measures at the Echo—& am quite sure that you have done the right thing—have infinite confidence in the Jew-man Freddy.

Did you see Ouïda’s letter about Olive Schreiner in the D.N this morning? {1}—Is that the truth do you know?—Did you read what the coster said yesterday in the police court—when asked if he had anything to say in answer to the policeman’s evidence (charge of obstructing traffic) “Taint no use, not a bit—He uses the truth so careless.” Rather sweet nicht wahr? & very applicable to affairs in general in these days. The Education question seems to have got a few days reprieve.

Have done the Board Schools today—& am just off to see Miss Montague who has telegraphed for an interview.

It wants Its Freddy a bit—got a headache principally in the backbone: would like the feel of Its Freddy’s big broad shoulder to night—but will take it “by faith”[.] Meantime loves Its Freddy more than a Bit.. This It

Freddy—I know you are not very great on the Papers so am sending you one of Chesterton’s reviews—The Mystery of the Mystics {1}. There is something so blade-straight[,] so fresh discerning in this man’s style & in his apprehension: here are some fine sentences worth keeping—especially one that suits the farthest fibre of me—“True spirituality is as humble as a lover and as careless as a schoolboy.”

There is also one other thing that I noted for you—You remember the question that arose between you & Mr Cope on the title of Neville Chamberlain. You were right[—]it is Field Marshal

Does Miss Judge come with you on Saturday morning {2} or later? We shall be a jolly big party. I do hope that we get a cycle ride tomorrow. I am longing to feel myself on that free wheel again!—

Shall think of you this afternoon—hope you’ll get a good game: Sweetheart—Yours

Emmeline.

Such a perfect day dearest—so fresh so bright so fragrant. Someday I must take you for the walk that I went yesterday—the loveliest wildest tramp the most glorious expanse & freedom.

I do not think that it will be necessary for me to go to Holmwood this week. I may possibly break the journey there on Saturday {1}.

I am glad that you are getting plenty of golf. I think I shall ride to Bognor this afternoon with some of the party.

Your letter this morning was very sweet to me. Your Sweetheart

Emmeline

Just come in from flying a kite—one of those new scientific ones from America. Oh it was pretty to feel it pull—to hear it sing as it came down. Yes—we will fix up Canning Town for the 14th. Your bicycle is mended. It was the darling Daddy sent me the kite & a cheque for £23 this morning which make† £50 since I came here. Isn’t he an angel?—Oh—oh—but I do want to see him again. Getting awful hungry. Me go cry! like Freddy go when him hungry—!
