London, 29 October 1899
Arrived here in London yesterday from Paris and am sharing the Sabbath peace with Eng Hammarsköld in our office here listening to what has happened here. Not until tomorrow will we visit several places.
In Brussels & Paris was nothing that was of interest for us. The exhibition building was not yet so far along that we could see anything of our planned site.
I have not had the opportunity to hear anything from Gustaf, nor anything from you & Lalle, but hope you are all, each where you are, well and I send greeting to all and many kisses to both Mother & Lalle, hurriedly from Father.
