Dearest, best Jack,
Your dear letter arrived just as my note went off.
I haven't the pluck even to look at a journey of any sort. And to start on a pilgrimage without faith is the worst thing one can do. Here at any rate I do some work. I've got into the gro(o)ve. A change would unsettle me I fear. Thank you my dear fellow for all you say; and no doubt you are right --but.......
Everything seems frightfully difficult and writing most of all.
Our best love to you both. Yours ever
