My dear Publisher -

You are clearly having a good time of it! I can only regret that I may not go with you to Brussels - Meanwhile say many things of course from me to our friend Harry[4] - and when you come back come and tell us[5] of your travels -

The pictures are going to Munich all right - I have heard from the Herr Paulus[6] - Your edition of the Kipling[7] is very pretty - do send us some more novels - I will send William[8] for whatever you may think we would delight in.

Bon voyage! - and good luck!
