Scope and content

Lt. J.M. Luce c/o Grindlay's Bank, Bombay. - Has been ill and in hospital, followed by three weeks 'glorious' leave at Darjeeling. The view of Kanchenjunga is superb, Everest by comparison disappointing; had he been fit he would have gone trekking to Tibet. Is now back at his depot but expects to go to a unit in the west of India soon. Has sent some tea from Darjeeling to Trevelyan and Bessie and hopes it arrives safely. Hopes Ursula and Julian's baby has arrived. Has been reading Hazlitt's "Table-Talk": the kind of essays Trevelyan would write 'equally well if not better'.
