West Hackhurst, Abinger Hammer, Dorking

Dear Mr Pethick-Lawrence,

Mrs Barger is here again, and I remember you saying that you might be able to come and see her one afternoon. If you are free next Sunday (the 23rd) I should be so pleased if you could walk over and stay to tea—I shall be here myself that day.

With kind remembrance to Mrs Pethick-Lawrence and yourself:

Yours sincerely
E M Forster
