Letter No.: 
VWL3657
[About 10th December 1952]

The White Gates,
Dorking.

Dear Boo

I have to be in Manchester from Monday Jan 12th to Friday Jan 16th1  – I also have to be in town on Jan 11th & shall therefore start for Manchester from London. I wonder if you would like to come & keep house at White Gates while I am away as you have kindly done before?
I suggest that when Beasley brings me up to London on Sunday 11th he should call for you and bring you back to Dorking - & then it wd be very nice to find you here over the weekend of the 17th – or alternatively come down on Saturday 10th & spend that weekend here. I enclose 2 pairs of Phil tickets – the ones for Jan 21 are for S.A.2  the others for Dec 17th is rather a dull programme. Perhaps you could find some one who could use them.
Give my love to Adam & Pam when you see her.3
Yrs

Ralph
