Dear Joyce

We think the design1 is delightful & we shall love to give it - & have a small share in the new home. If only the young Emil2 can carry out the design as we wish!  I have sent it to him to study.
Tell Gerald that Ellen is only just back from her holiday. I will send him the information very soon.3  We are very happy that Dorking is the chosen place.4

He sends love with mine
