2 Portland Villas, Hampstead - London

Dearest Violet 

It is now decided that we leave on Thursday week. So that if you come on Wednesday it will do just as beautifully well as Tuesday.
That 'Pickle' comes in my book; I wrote it in 1917. But there's a much longer story to be written about those two - the man and woman - when they were together.
S. made me feel in his letter how vital it was to have the full free courage of one's ideas. Its time [we] told, as Tolstoi says, "everything, everything".
I look forward to seeing you both - immensely.
With love
Yours ever
