Transcript: 

It may be Boosey and Hawkes will be but another example. Let us not mind, if so. We know. And for the present, that is sufficient.
Forget to-day. Play, and compose for the new man, who is here, but whom you cannot reach yet. He will understand your messages and be nourished.
Reg tells me your Dark and Light is a brilliant thing. Good! I wish to hear it.

Eric
sometimes [different signing of ] Eric
