Scope and content

(London Hospital, Whitechapel?)—Asks to borrow his motor tomorrow, and asks if he is enjoying Walmer.

(Dated Sunday.)




I wonder if you’d like to let me have the motor tomorrow, if you did I would pick you up at a few minutes after 5 if you really felt you could face the Whitechaple† road again.

Let me know when you want to be picked up.

Are you having fun at Walmer, be very nice to Margot so that she asks you again on the 11th. The P.M doesnt dare ask Diana tho’ he longs to.

Venetia {2}


Probably written at the London Hospital, Whitechapel.
