I am very grateful for your speedy and detailed reply. We shall be there on February 4. If you can, find us a room for two, by the week, not dearer than 1 franc a day; preferably in an ordinary working-class family (with a stove; it may still be cold).
If this is impossible, perhaps you will recommend a cheap hotel (1 franc a day, or even cheaper), where we could stay until we found a room ourselves. We shall agree on the date of the lecture, etc.
I hope to have a money order from you on Monday morning (keep a special account of the expenses: the express and the like, and postal expenses generally, etc., because we shall cover them ourselves).
