Dorking. - Has 'spent all day dancing upon the tight-plank' to stencil a frieze for Bob's hall, since the decorator was a 'confounded duffer' and would have ruined the design; thinks it will be 'rather jolly' but despairs about the sitting room. Asks Bob to thank his mother for letting her ladies' club know [the Grosvenor Crescent Club] about his lectures; has sent some more prospectuses and tickets, but they are now selling well, 'So the war hasn't quite destroyed everything yet'. Will 'jump at the idea' of [illustrating?] Bob's translations, would 'like them to be in a Lorenzo Monaco style'. The ring [for Bob's engagement to Elizabeth van der Hoeven] can certainly be made smaller.
