• Letters to George and Mercy McCann


you look up (better drop a card first) Mrs. Coldstream, 9 Percy Street, off Tottenham Court Road. She is very lovely, living there by herself, driving ambulances. Do write and tell me all about Europe (the chimes are marching: The Prince of Wales tells off his Horse.) Everyone here seems bored with Europe except that they go sentimental over Finland. I must go down now and have my 6.15 meal. What a pity you're not all over here. I hope to hire or borrow a car later and get around further; the country is disgracefully big. Please write, with all best wishes, love, Louis.
