Scope and content

18 Mansfield Street, Portland Place, W.—Is unable to lunch with him tomorrow, but suggests other arrangements. Explains a remark she made about Hugh and Violet at Easton Grey.

(Dated Tuesday.)



18 Mansfield Street, Portland Place, W.

I dont know whether you did expect me to lunch tomorrow, I rather think you didnt, but just in case you did I write to say that I find I cant, as Mother has to go away for these two days and may be coming back at luncheon time so I think I must be in as she will possibly have arrangements to make with me. But will you lunch here, or do come and see me in the evening, any time after 6.30 would suit me as I am going to the Club {1} and shall be doing nothing till I start about 7.30.

I want to assure you again that my remark at Easton Grey was not meant to have the slightest personal application, and indeed when I made it I was thinking rather of the disadvantages from Hugh’s point of view than from Violet’s.



{1} The Archie Gordon Club camp at Lulworth.
