Notes, topics or text 

Dora's letter to BR is readdressed from New York City to San Francisco, California, c/o M.J. Stevenson, Western Women's Club Bldg.

Dora asks if they can afford to purchase a £30 piano for Battine House. Her leg is better, but not well: "Dr. Sainsbury says I might be off to Droitwich (! God!) for a fortnight. I can't see us sharing the Christmas holiday there—can you?" She advises Kate is feeling better after giving her cod liver oil.

"It is a kind of prostitution for you to do these lecture tours." [Is this before or after BR called himself a "mental male prostitute", presumably because of his public lecturing?]

Griffin Barry is finishing his Russian articles in Battine House.

Dora dreamt someone threw a bomb at BR and killed him. She wonders what the dream signifies.
