Tuesday. July 9th. Jasmine Cottage
Barfrestone, Nr Dover
Thanks for your p.c. and invitation to dinner for tomorrow night, but we’ve got an affair on hand here tomorrow night and I can’t come up until Thursday morning – But I should like to meet Gabo – Tschichold told me about him, and Maholy Nagy [sic] was also telling me about him the other night, so also Dr Antal spoke of him – So I’d be sorry not to meet him, – Do you know if he’s going to remain in London for a few days? Do you think you could ask him if he’s going to be in London this Friday – if so and he’s free I’d like to ask him to come and have tea at Parkhill Road (say at 5 pm) and I could by coming back here by a later train than I usually catch, have a good hour or more with him, which I’d like very much.
I’ll ring you up from Chelsea on Thursday. (I’d ask him to come round Thursday evening but there’s a meeting of the Artists Unit affair to go to).
I’m not sending you a wire about this as the nearest post office is about a couple of miles away, and the motor bike conked out yesterday.
Love to you both from us both
