My dearest Charles
Can you be at home on Sunday for me - in the forenoon? I can't get to you before. I shall bring Connie to you on Monday however, I hope.

Don't trouble to write unless I mustn't come -
Addieu (sic) to Herne Hill in case of anything - I shall
be there tomorrow evening, I hope.
Ever yours JR
