Victoria Palace Hotel, Paris

Dear Ida
   It is no use writing to you when you are too tired to reply. And please do not write to me after 10.30 o'clock p.m. You know what I think about your incredible folly in sitting up after midnight. Its more; it really will ruin your mind and memory and understanding. But you only do it to attract attention to yourself Even to attract yourself to yourself. Nobody admires it.
   I send back Mrs M's letter as I daresay you have not made a note of the address. No, I shall not write to her. Why should I? She has not written directly to me.
              Yours ever
                  K.M. [To Ida Baker, 5 April 1922.]
