|Content Description||Addresses her 'Dear Catherine'; tells her not to 'get that white look on you' and believes that when 'L feels like you do, he bullies me'; she is going to be happy and her 'deep contempt for humanity makes me pleased with every new sign of their vileness'; refers to patriotism and believes she is 'not them'.|
Is happy by herself 'doing'; wonders how she can 'be well - when everything is so wrong!'; doesn't think Don[ald Carswell] will have to go [to war] and Catherine Carswell should not to worry on his behalf.
[The letter changes to dark ink]; Frieda asks Carswell to get two jersey's for her daughters for 10sh. from a smallish shop just before Selfridges [London]; talks about her daughters; she has sometimes wished them dead and has to fight for them 'here with Lawrence and with Ernst and with them themselves'; L[awrence] is 'more reasonable now'; this is a 'dirty looking letter, but she 'wrote it mostly in bed'; L's novel ['Women in Love'] is being corrected in type and it is 'such a mocking novel'; requests Carswell doesn't tell people about Amy [Lowell's] money; she can't bear people talking about them as 'it's mostly horrid what they say'; signed 'F'.
Date: The letter was originally undated and has been annotated, possibly by John Carswell, with '?1916'
