Title: ALs to Frank Stone
My Dear Stone
I paid immediate attention to your letter.
Augustus is married, this morning. If I come round to you about 4, will you walk up to Jack Straw's castle at Hampstead, with me, and have a chop. I will then read you the third part. I propose Hampstead instead of this place, as I think it probable that some of my very affectionate relations may hold on here, as long as there is anything to drink--and my only chance of certain escape is to rush madly out.
