Notes, topics or text 

This is a transcription of letter number 1466 which is a letter fragment (record 18653). The first two lines of letter number 1466 have not been transcribed.

The letter is dated July 1917, but the date comes from the handwritten letter in which both the date and the location were added in Lady Ottoline's hand. Russell was at the Feathers on 30 July in Ludlow. On 31 July he had moved to The Avenue, nicknamed Boismaison, in Ashford Carbonell.

"I have left the Feathers and moved into a farm about 3 miles from Ludlow—it is delicious country. I have been sleeping 10 hours every night, and have grown full of vigour. I have thought very little. I am coming home Friday...." He came home on Friday, 17 August, which would indicate that this was written in August, after Friday, 10 August.
