be a tool for this. I am almost in fear of being lost afterwards and will depend utterly upon the unknown quantity, for my own wits could not devise another to equal it.
And so I am working -- Christmas will be here the day after tomorrow I believe but this work is my Christmas and I can think of no better way to do justice to this day, though of course I shall not work on that day.
I shall probably spend it with an apple and a good book -- (beg pardon, a dried apricot I mean) because the family who had invited me monthly since June are ill and all other invitations have been turned down, and anyone of those I would like to celebrate with are not in London or free, so!

Your Christmas will be funny too I suppose.
How are you progressing now old man -- successfully I'm sure.
