My dear Willie -
Did you get my letter some time ago about Dr Woakes and the picture? .
I have not as yet had a word from any of you -
I wish - well never mind but just forward the enclosed to him -
We hear you are [p. 2] all very well and having rather a good time - so that's all right! -
But what a hot bed England is becoming for these d — d Anarchist scoundrels!
By the way if you see Hanson it has some how occurred to me that he is such a serious Ass that he might be led by his love of mystery and general monkeyism to disport himself at some of these accursed "clubs" - Let him have a little talk with you if he comes round, and let him understand the loathing we have for that lot -
With love to both from both of us -
