Hotel Chateau Belle Vue, Sierre, Switzerland

Dear Elizabeth
   Many many thanks once more.
   I am so sorry to hear of your misfortunes .... My story isn't a bit wonderful; I wish to God it were. But I'm panting for new scenes, new blood - everything brand new! In fact, you've lent that £100 to a fearfully desperate character.
   Ever, dear Elizabeth,
                    Yours lovingly,
[To Elizabeth, Countess Russell, 3 August 1922.]
