Victoria Palace Hotel, Paris

Brettushka,
   I wish I knew whether my letters arrive or not. If you get this one do please send me a card on the spot. Are you coming on the 18th. I went out today Miss and bought myself a sweet-pretty-hat-it-was-indeed, and walked away in it carrying my dead one in a paper bag. Which is to say:
   That this reaction seems to be nearly over. I do feel much better. Manoukhin is very pleased, was yesterday.
   Oh, Brett I cant say what its like! I still dont dare to give myself up to believing all is going to be quite well. But all the same.
   God bless you darling.
                Your
                  Tig [To Dorothy Brett, 8 April 1922.]
