FG RLS NUMBER FIVE BANK STREET3 Dear Mr. Greenslet1;

I'm delighted to know you are back from the front4. Please save an hour to tell me about your adventures in London5—when you come to New York2.

No news about this book6 just now. I've been having late suppers with Yasye7 and his Belgian colleagues, and giving a dinner party for Fremstad8, and going to a string of musical parties with the Hambourgs9. Next week I begin to keep lent and to punish the typewriter. Meanwhile, I think the story is coming out all right.

I hope you will come over to New York before you are tired of talking about your recent voyages.

Faithfully W. S. C.
