29 Fitzroy Square W.
You have made a monstrosity of our address-- 29 Gordon Square. However, your letter did come at last. What with your Homes and your Jekylls, and your new puppies and your budding trees -- was there ever such a good gardener as Ozzy? I am melted into an indistinguishable mass; pearl grey, and vaporous.
Well, God knows where one should begin a letter, seeing that I have been to Paris and back, changed my house, entered a new study all in the interval.
Now I am learning to write to the tune of twenty railway vans, which grind rough music beneath my window; but the grey houses opposite and the trees which are just beginning to grow green, are expected to heal the damage to my style.
Letter to Violet Dickinson (L1 291)
