Dear Mr Hardy,

I shall be very pleased to come, and the date you suggest will suit me excellently. The first Saturday in August is the [Page 2] [Page 3] 4th, so if I am alive I hope you will see me then; but at present my tenure of existence is more than usually precarious, as I am learning the bicycle.

I am yours very truly

A. E. Housman.
