Abstract:

Referencing a gambling venture (possibly proposed by Swanton), which Dowson has declined in favor of staying at Bridge Dock. Mentioning a visit to the theater and discussing plays, noting that "even bad melo[drama] doesn't cause me to vomit as it once did." Asking Moore to return to Babylon (i.e., London) so that they may dine at the Poland (mentioning "I dine there every night & little Mdlle de Poland (Adelaide Foltinowicz) is beginning to greet me with a smile"), go to the theater, dine at the Arts & Letters Club, and further develop their work on the collaborative novel "Felix Martyr." Lamenting Christmastime, fearing that he shall not escape depression, wondering why "haven't we done away with anniversaries," and asking "why do we have watches or clocks or hours at all?" Threatening to "swear off wine & women & weeds & late hours & confine myself to the writing of the r.o. ("Felix Martyr") & the cult of Minnie Terry."
