Dear Mr Webb -

I see they have not put in the letter[3] - and I have no doubt you have had some sort of answer already, of which perhaps you have sent me the copy so that I shall receive it tomorrow morning -

We must be very sharp and firm with those people -

Tomorrow evening we [p. 2] all meet at dinner -

Au revoir then -
Always sincerely Yrs
