Object Detail

St Ives Saturday
They wash their windows with a squeegee & squirt water everywhere. Sunday they are tidy and terribly respectable and go to Chapel
I have not heard anything of Winnie B for a long time. I wonder if she is still in England. I must write to Cousin Mary and find out. I sent last week’s papers to Geoff. I knew you wouldn’t mind dear but have Punchs for you this mail & a book. Hope you will get them all right. No doubt some of my letters go down. I write pretty often dear do you get the papers?
I shall be glad to be out of this Studio but dread the move. The staircase at my new Studio is so narrow (I think formerly it must have been the chimney) that I will have some difficulty in getting up my things.
Very fat, square or three cornered people will not be able to get up the stairs. I shall have to rig up a pulley. Well dear, no more now. Mrs Lloyd and her husband just back from France are coming in to town to see their portrait. I hope he will like it well enough to buy it.
