My dear Gertrude.

The censors be upon us – yet I want to make some signal to you – of love and goodbye – Deedes and I are off tomorrow to Toulon to see if we can thereby expedite ourselves where we would be.

I went to Frevent on my way here in a damnable snow storm full of skids & broke two wheels – and found some difficulties which I trust are to some extent ameliorated – In such a time and place it is impossible that there should not be occasional difficulties – and of all difficult people doctors are the worst.

Well – I go – without an address, more or less – without some things I wanted very much – Do I still remain a philosopher?

Write to me – but remember the censor until I say we are free. And if there should be occasion help Frevent because I cannot - & it is mine.
