Select Hotel, Place de la Sorbonne, Paris

Yes, I care for Lawrence. I have thought of writing to him and trying to arrange a meeting after I leave Paris - suggesting that I join them until the spring. Richard, too, I think of with love. That reminds me. Won't you ask Milne down for a weekend? But he is so shy perhaps he would refuse. Do you know what I think he is? A Dreamer. A real one. He chooses to dream.
I am going to Fontainebleau next week to see Gurdjieff. I will tell you about it. Why am I going? From all I hear he is the only man who understands there is no division between the body and the spirit, who believes how they are related. You remember how I have always said doctors only treat half. And you have replied ‘Its up to you to do the rest'? It is. Thats true. But first I must learn how. I believe Gurdjieff can teach me. What other people say doesn't matter - other people matter not at all.
But you matter to me - more and more. Id like to say I believe as never before in the possibility of real living relationship between us - a true one. Again, my love, I thank you for the rose.
