Not a squeak out of you. Where are you and how are you, we are here. We came near getting a house. It was just the house we wanted and a pharmacian who has made a fortune in patent medicine started to make an old estate for himself and he brought up the whole commune including our house and now we are rather pleased or on the whole I do not think we would want to live altogether in this country. It is very lovely but not very interesting so for the moment that excitement is over but we have other plans and we will have a try later. Just at present we are staying on here. It is too hot to go anywhere else, golly it is hot, but do tell us about yourselves and what you are doing and how you are doing it. Had a card from George Antheil for his concert and are you in that. Otherwise nothing very exciting. The Oxford lecture is to be printed with the four things I read, making a little volume and I am very pleased, and I know you will be too. Everybody in England still seems happy about me and so am I and so I hope are you. Do tell us all the news. P—- has left for Cannes in his being a final excitement. Alice is sleeping and forgetting to-day’s heat.
