Chalet des Sapins, Montana-sur-Sierre, Switzerland

Darling Precious Anne
   The curse is I cant possibly start for Paris for 2 weeks from today, and thats only fixed if the weather permits! So this time we shant meet again. But Anne, in the spring we are coming to Paris to be there for at least 4 months. Surely we shall meet then. We must, dearest. I see you and Drey flying over and me with a spyglass on the hotel roof Oh, Anne, if you knew what I'd give to see you . . . I shall be too happy for words. All beams! Its in the spring I am going in for this Russian treatment - chasse des Microbes par les Rayons X. What I want to do is for us to get a small apartment as I have ma petite faute with me - in the shape of my cat and I cant expect him to put up with hotels. So Spring - let us meet in Spring! I shall hold thumbs from now to April. The idea of my coat is VERY thrilling. We have 6 feet of snow here - I hate snow; I love the fertile earth and I love Paris - and just love you -
