Dear, good friend & cher Maitre,
I have both been unwell & sore "hodden doun" by the British Workman. Also did I want to achieve the adventure of Lady Meux before writing and lo! you have achieved it. I am so truly grateful & glad.
Today the Streets are quasi impassable & its snowing like mad, but as soon as a convalescent can get out I will trot down to the haunt of the wife of the Millionaire
As far as an ordinary mortal [p. 2] can see thro' brick wall - I think that the 20th of January will see us afloat
Yrs, with many cordialest messages to your wife & yourself -
F G Prange
