This is Dorothy Richardson’s first typewritten letter.
‘Fine’ could be a typographical error for wine, or could be a reference to brandy.
Bryher and her husband at this time, Robert McAlmon, were spending much of their time in Paris and had invited Richardson to join them. She had already been to Paris in the spring of 1924, and had there come across Dada, who were famous for their experiments with typefaces, word size and spacing, among other things.
