Postmarked Dorking. - His mother sends her love and much enjoyed the broadcast [of Bob's essay "Simple Pleasures", broadcast on the BBC Home Service on the evening of 10 July] but wished Bob had been reading himself. Arthur [Waley] enjoyed it too, and found it 'a strange and a pleasant change to hear the loudspeaker speaking common-sense'; did not think the readers were bad, apart from 'the woman with the tea-kettle sigh'. Hopes Bob will be able to visit later in the month. as 'so nice' to see Bessy. Is not going to the dinner.
