MEMO toAddress in care of
Dear Carrie1;

for the first time in many years I have no address3! Very gloomy feeling. I don't yet know where I shall be for the next few months, but wherever I am I'll want Irene's4 address. Won't you please send it to me in care of Knopf5.

The Archbishop6 is out in a few days now—I hope he has more go in him than I have. The week of packing and going into storage nearly put a finish to me.

With my love Willie
