FG Dear Mr. Greenslet1:

No telephone3; God knows when. I will keep all of next Wednesday free, and I suggest that you come in for tea tea and a subsequent cup of cheer with me at four oclock, not later, for I want to be able to talk without a sense of hurry. We4've no maid as yet, so there's nothing doing in dinners for the present.

Thank you for the figures5 on the books6. They are just what I wanted.

Hastily W. S. C.

Let me know when I can telephone you on Tuesday, or merely drop me a line if above suggestions suit you.
