Hotel Chateau Belle Vue, Sierre, Switzerland

Dear precious Koteliansky,
   After all, I shall not have the money to come to England for a week this autumn. I must be in Paris on August 20th and then for about 10 days I must attend to my Father who is coming to see me there on his way back to New Zealand. After that, I shall be alone for the autumn, and for 10-12 weeks I must go to the clinique once a week. But I tell you all these tedious details simply because, in spite of my Spartan feelings in my last letter, I wonder again if there is any possibility of your coming across during that time. I do - I long to see you and for us to talk. Do not think I am trying to interfere or to make demands. It is not that at all. But it would be so nice, so awfully nice to look forward to such happiness. I want to talk to you for hours about - Aaron's Rod, for instance. Have you read it? [To S.S.Koteliansky, 17 July 1922.]
