Two pages, obl. 8vo, fold marks, closed tear along fold, remnants of sellotape, some marking, text clear and complete. He appreciates Temple's enjoyment of Brittany, and his and his description of prehistorical remains so enticing that it makes me wish to visit the same spot. He is holding a letter addressed to Temple. He then reveals what his wife is doing (visiting their son). I am now doing a little work in the studio for it is probable that we may prolong our stay till after the end of Oct. when we hope to see you in full possession of your usual good health.
