25 Wellington Square, Chelsea, S.W. (written on "New Statesman" headed notepaper. - He and Micky are looking forward to their 'jaunt' with Trevelyan; has written for rooms at the Hotel de Londres. Will spend Sunday in Paris, seeing Pam [Diamand?] and others; on Monday they will go to Chartres; would like Trevelyan to spare a day or two from the 'huge spaces of time' he will have in Italy to stay longer in France with them. Asks if he has a 'statuo quo chessboard'. Will return from Liverpool by the night train so they can leave Victoria by the train at eleven in the morning.
