Alice has written and called so often that I am sure you know all about our good voyage and the delay in the channel.
We are getting off letters today [through] the guard ship, which are much more certain of being posted than those sent earlier [through] casual sailors.
We are receiving every courtesy from the English officials and are of course perfectly comfortable in our anchored ship. [page 2]
It is hard to keep patient of course as one day goes by another -- this is the beginning of our fourth -- but on the whole we are doing very well and are quite an interesting conference of our own. We have communicated with Mr Page at London & are hoping to move on in [course] of [time]. My love to H.H.
Always devotedly yours,
