An adorable letter by Milne, written to his close personal friend, Vincent Seligman, whom he refers to affectionately as "Vi". and jokingly requests if he could pay "this" (perhaps a bill?) and to give money to his family stating "Lord what an expense the woman is."
Be an angel and pay this. There will h - or won't there? -

When I am now practically Kipling (Lord, what an expense the woman is). Also give her my love. Bless you both.
A great short letter with insight into Milne's humor, and his insightful desire to compare himself to the successes of Rudyard Kipling. The letter was written to Vincent Seligman, who was a German Jew whose family emigrated to the London and the USA in the 19th century.
