F.G. Dear Mr. Greenslet1;

I could not answer your note3 and thank you for the check before this, as I have been laid low by inocculation against typhoid. Next time I'll take my chances with the disease itself. I don't expect to drink much water in Italy4, anyhow. My Paris5 address will be care of Thomas Cook and Sons. So far, everything seems to promise a good trip. I had a delightful hour with Hugh Walpole6 before he sailed.

Faithfully yours W. S. C.
