Dear Mr. Secretary -
I want to look at your Press list - that I may see at a glance with whom I have to deal - Kindly give it to Mr Hanson that he may bring it back with him -
And now I want you to be charming and come and take your coffee with me here tomorrow morning at 10. o'clock, if not too early for you - then, at our easy pleasure, we could settle many matters over the breakfast table - and I should [p. 2] get some of Mr. Secretary's shrewd advice! -
Also I could talk over with him two or three things that I did not care to go into the other evening -
So do come my dear Cauty -
I am barely ten minutes drive from your place - and the morning air will give you an appetite for my coffee
w which is good! -
Kings Road. Chelsea.
