Very good indeed Major! - Jersey is I believe a gentle let down towards "the Island" itself - and perhaps I will go and call upon you there! -
Meanwhile I have just come back from Webbs yacht! - and if it had not been for your supernatural wisdom in sending me my heavy fur coat and [p. 2] my own joyous ribaldry in taking it with me, I dont know what I should have done!! -
A roaring North East wind! all the while - Miserable I was! -
I have returned in haste with a pain in my back! -
I must get out of this - and shall probably go right down South -
But dont you trouble about that - manage all the rest as you say - and really it all seems to arrange itself for the best - even poor Therèse's temporary withdrawal to her mother's! -
[p. 3] Now I enclose Thils letter - You will see that he has done his best - and of the
other tenants, one has promised not to shake any more! and the other remains abdurate in a way - but agrees not to shake after 10. o'clock in the morning - and to give warning by a whistle - which is what, Thil says, Mrs. Morgan's servants did!? - This I suppose would be the Saleron!
I have written Thil, asking for a few days further armistice as the Spaniards do, so that I may think it out before giving my definite answer! - It seems to me though that it might be an awful nuisance to have the Saleron whistling out of her window every morning!! I have begged Thil to telegram if it be she who whistles! -
Now Major you needn't trouble about the long envelope - but send me the papers I brought home from Beurdeleys [p. 4] one evening - they contain letters and newspapers about the trial. That is all I want - Can't you find my interview in the "Journal"? Dont send the papers whole but cut out the part belonging to the court - Also send the green curtain, that
I brought came back to me through the Goupils with my little pictures - It is in the studio folded up - on one of the sofas - probably behind the screen with Vanderbilts things - It might be wrapped up with the black velvet and both sent, as Marie lent the velvet to me -
I am so tired! must go to bed!
nicest messages to you all!
