Thanks for telegrams about the Sale (see letter of 31 Mar); afraid results not very brilliant; longing to see the priced catalogue. An influx of Van den relations from St.Tropez on a visit. Summer holidays are now being discussed; want to share lodgings with the Van dens so as not to separate the children. Hope that perhaps Pippa and Pernel will join the party if successful in finding some delightful health resort. Wants news of James, Duncan and Vincent. News from England (the Irish rebellion) seems like the 'wildest imaginations of a romantic feuilleton' Sent from La Souco.
