|Content Description||Addresses her as 'My dear Pamela'; thought he was better but the haemorrhage came back; it is nothing serious but he has to 'lie up for it'; English friends come over from Florence all the time, the Huxleys [Aldous and Maria] came from Forte and the Wilkinsons, their neighbours, are very good; they will leave for Austria as soon as he has been up for a week; wonders if it is hotter and drier in England; describes their weather as 'fierce' in the midday and afternoon; sends a pound for 'Peg' [Margaret] and Joan [Emily's daughters] for the holiday; wonders how the Bulwell business goes and how Sam[uel King] likes it; there is not much to say when in bed; sends love to them all; signed 'D.H.L.'|
Includes a plain envelope (La Z 4/3/29/2), addressed to Mrs S. King, 16 Brooklands Rd, Sneinton Hill, Nottingham, Inghilterra ; bears a blue 1,25 Lire stamp, postmarked 7.7.27; the envelope has been numbered '20' in pencil on the verso; the envelopes for La Z 4/3/1-70 (letters from D.H. Lawrence to Emily King) were previously separated from the letters themselves and given an individual pencil number; as far as possible these envelopes have now been matched up with their corresponding letters and sub-numbered according to the letter which they originally contained.
Date: the letter is undated and has been annotated 'July 1927', in pencil in an unknown hand; Boulton, 'The Letters of D.H. Lawrence', vol. 6, p. 105 gives the date as 25 July 1927.
