Scope and content

Shiffolds. - Apologises for dictating her letter as she is unwell. The final decision about whether Gathorne-Hardy can use the correspondence between her husband and Robert Bridges rests with his literary executor, Humphry Trevelyan. Would like to know the details of the planned publication so that she can correspond with Humphrey: which letters; whether Gathorne-Hardy intends to insert any of the text of the poem [Testament of Beauty], as she found it difficult not having it to hand when Mrs Jones was reading the letter; whether he plans to advertise the publication widely or just amongst his friends.
