Scope and content

Northlands, Englefield Green, Surrey. - Wishes Bessie could come tomorrow; would like very much to see her and she would have been a real help in entertaining 'these kind people'; has had her worst heart attack for some time so 'everything seems more difficult'. Believes that the 'Edinburgh Professorship is a bogus affair'; she understood that 'it just stood for the money' or she 'would not have secured Donald [Tovey]'s getting it'; hopes he resigns soon. Also cannot finance 'a large artistic undertaking' [Donald's concerts in Germany?] unless she is sure 'the artist has honestly done his work' which she believes is 'a physical impossibility' in Edinburgh. Would have been glad if he had spent the autumn in Germany practising; will write him his decision at the end of August.
