My Dear

What lovely presents - the tie will smarten me up for the duration.
I think your idea for an enquiry bureau1here is good. When I wrote to Rosemary I quite forgot about air-mail - But doesn’t everything go by air-mail these days? I will write to Maud about it.
I assure you that I take every care of myself.
You do the same.
Goodbye my dear
Yrs

P.S. I’m glad you like ‘Love bade me welcome’2 - I like it the best.


1. Presumably in connection with internees.
2. No.3 of Five Mystical Songs (Catalogue of Works 1911/2).
