West Hackhurst, Abinger Hammer, Dorking

Dear Pethick Lawrence,

Just back from India, and perhaps I may have a chance soon of coming over to thank you for all the help you gave me in getting there; also to tell you any scraps of news which might interest.

Mrs Barger comes here to morrow and stays over the week end. Perhaps we might ring up your house on Sunday, and find out whether a call from us is likely to be convenient to you both.

With all kind wishes:

E M Forster

[Added by Pethick-Lawrence in pencil:] EMF is having to vacate his home fairly soon.
