[late September 1933]

The White Gates,
Westcott Road,
Dorking.

Dear Diana

You are very naughty - I know you went without your lunch all about that wretched hat. But I do thank you for all you do for me - I love having you do things for me you know that don't you?
We must meet again soon - have a good lunch with your Lord Justice - I wonder how the evening concert went off.
Thank you for letting me see your tramps.1 I hope that Warden will be all right - a little bit glib I thought - but he may be all right. I had a letter from Alice2 telling about poor Billy Reed being almost cut out of his Symphony.3
Goodbye
Love from

Uncle Ralph
