"My dear dear love, I am afraid that my farewell letter to you must stand—" This letter is in an envelope with a registered mail number and several postmarks.

Colette brings up many specifics from their past.

She also tells of a coincidental visit to Josephine Hall's office—"a slatternly chit of a girl"—with BR's unanswered recent correspondence "strewn about anyhow": one from Hertz, one from the Royal Society, another from India, another about BR's UNESCO speech. Hall's address: "Josephine Hall, Secretarial Aunts, of 324 High Holborn". Colette then offers to take on this work for BR. She did this work for BR while they were together in Stockholm.

Notes for and draft fragments of this letter are also found in box 6.63, file e.

Malleson's book of letters, 2: 140, refers only to Urch seeing this letter in draft which is document .200804q, record 107296.
