6 Oxford Terrace, Edinburgh. Dated 2nd Dec. 1913 - Thanks him belatedly for 'The Dying God'; is sorry the George Square scheme didn't work, but does think London better than Edinburgh; knows [Wickham] Steed well by name and thinks he will be a 'great and beneficent force' on the staff of 'The Times'; would like to meet him somewhere in Italy in the spring, and asks if they have been to the Naples-Amalfi region or to Sicily; congratulations to Mrs Frazer on her new role as a grandmother and on the new book ['Victor et Victorine'?]; Emy and Fred are in Paris, and he has begun a series of articles in the Scotsman.
