95 Sloane Street Aug 20 Dearest Mother. The enclosed will explain itself. I've written it so that you can send it on bodily to the Bp of London if you think fit. I really don't know what to do for space. We are tumbling over each other and the thing grows and grows. Lord Robert is very eager that we should take up the job I mention - if we don't he says no one will, and I know it's so.
Father will tell you that Milly has asked if she may come to me for Sep and I've said yes. I'm sure you won't mind. I've been bitterly alone this month. It's intolerable not to like being alone as I used, but I can't keep myself away from my own thoughts, and they are still more intolerable. Gertrude
