My dear Pennell -

I needn't tell you that I was delighted to get your note[2] - But where is the paper? - Why did you not post it? -

You can't get the Star[3] any where in Paris - for I have asked all over the place - Do cut out the paragraphs and enclose them (after putting on the date) in [p. 2] an envelope - Newspapers themselves take so much longer in the post -

I am waiting for all this that I may thank you & Mrs Pennell[4] -
