Dear Old Thing

Thanks tons for letter – so glad you enjoyed Sunday – I hope you enjoyed Saturday too – because I did – ever so much more than I thought I was going to. 

– its funny how much more energy is needed talking to a male than a female. 

Please excuse this dreadful writing & paper (ah – station – Camden Town) – but I’m so down in the dumps this was the only way I could think of to cheer me up – you see I’m just on my way to see Rome Express with Reggie – Oh-Lord - & I’m absolutely dead tired & I ought to be so wide awake – but I wish I was on my way to your German lecture instead - & another blow is that I don’t think I shall be coming up next Saturday – you see Mummy’s wangled me the morning off to have my hair done so I shan’t be going tube – but still it won’t hurt us for once – But its very nice & cheering to see you sticking out from the crowd at Belsize Park (we’re just there at the moment!)

- anyway I’ll try & arrange something with Norah for Richard of Bordeaus.

- It is amazing how much more I think I like you when you’re not there – its because, I think, when you are there I try so hard not to because one of us at it is quite enough - & it would hurt so much more if I suddenly found someone I really did like! – (oh heavens what a fool!) – But I’ve come to the conclusion – that however much you say you like me I’m not going to really believe it until 

I’ve seen what you’d do if
(a)  I lost my temper & bit you
(b)  I burst into tears because I was tired
(c)  I was disagreeable & horrid because I was tired (or board!)

-& oh heaps more – you see at present I’m always on my best with you – one day you’ll have a shock! – Golders Green – must stop

- Love
