Mr Hepburn has asked me to meet him tomorrow (Tuesday) morning at ¼ to 12 at Lower Vann Farm to inspect the long-discussed encroachments at the Road there. If fine I & Mrs. Wallace shall be at Witley Station at 10.40 & propose walking there & thought you might like to join us & perhaps Mrs. Allingham2 also. The matter I understand will be brought before the Haslemere Committee tomorrow evening.
