Sat. night

No - I cannot lunch or déjeuner with you my dear Heinemann - for Maxse[3] (the Admiral) has made an appointment with me at 2 - And as you are going to the races I dont see how I shall come upon you at all - for I am too tired out to dine at [Armon moite?]

I will tell you what! - you had better say to Nicholson[4] that you have some business matters to talk over with me, and be here at quarter to 12 - Breakfast with me and join him after for the races - Shall expect you if don't hear to the contrary
