No use after all! - Directly I had sent you the telegram, the wind changed!

Clean over to the East - and everything has been hideous! ever since! -

I think I will come over to you tomorrow - and for the Saturday & Sunday we can go somewhere [p. 2] near at hand -

The Studio itself is better of course than staring at a sea of tin! -

A bientôt -Always
