If you are in Town I ought not to be here - on the banks of the Marne! -
Absurd simply! - but I shall be back by the end of the week - and ready to go on with our great work at once -
What do you say of Monday - 30th. at three? -
I hope the country has done you no harm -
It could not make you more beautiful -
The Lady Collin [sic] Campbell
