(Betty) (Shirley)
of( which I will be able to tell you when I return home) & in the evening I visited Mr & Mrs Blow at Grosvenor House (the Duke of Westminister's City residence) to morrow I dine with Lady Low & Wednesday evening I am to visit the House of Parliament while it is in session won't I have lots to tell you? I sent
The cable from Blackburn I postponed it as long as I could thinking that I might be able to get along without the money, but it is wise to have it though I may not need to use it or very little of it.
