La Prieuré, Fontainebleau, Avon

Darling Bogey
   My fountain pen is mislaid, so as I am in a hurry to write please forgive this pencil.
   Would you care to come here on January 8 or 9 to stay until 14-15? Mr Gurdjieff approves of my plan and says you will come as his guest. On the 13th our new theatre is to be opened. It will be a wonderful experience. But I wont say too much about it. Only on the chance that you do come Ill tell you what clothes t0 bring.
   One sports suit with heavy shoes & stockings and a macintosh & a hat that doesn't matter. One ‘neat' suit with your soft collar or whatever collar you wear & tie (you see you are my husband & I cant help wanting you to look - what shall I say?), slippers, and so on. That's all. If you have a cardigan of course bring it and a pair of flannel trousers in case you get soaking wet & want to change.[...]
   I hope you will decide to come, my dearest. Let me know as soon as you can - won't you? I hope Tchekhov's wife will be here. I have gone back to my big lovely room, too, so we should have plenty of space to ourselves. We can also sit & drink kiftir in the cowshed.
   I cant write of other things in this letter. I hope to hear from you soon.
                 Your ever loving
                                   Wig. [To J. M. Murry, 31 December 1922.]
