text: My dear Ursula,
text: Many thanks for your letter of Nov.12th of the Zole in Nenglo land, of which I am sending a copy to Godfrey to see if anything can be done. What an absolute scandal that Thebhuing ha - Kuliabuing land case is. Its so difficult to do anything if S.D.O. calmly reverse each other's decisions and one naturally hears nothing about it.
text: What a marvellous surprise the arrival of Tim was. I've written to him, but doubt if the letter ever reaches him. Anyhow I can say little, for I'm entirely out of touch, having been away since Nov.1st, & do not know what letters have come in or what anyone has done about anything.
text: The family are at Gopalpur and rather hating it - the hotel and company both awful. My tour has been very pleasant and a complete mental rest and change - and not really very strenuous physically. Anyhow I've seen the remarkable Apa Tanis & I must say their country is rather like Conan Doyle's "Lost World".
text: Yours ever,
