Scope and content

Hogarth House, Richmond. - Thanks Bob for the 'correction in N.W'; thinks he is right and will alter it; is 'altering Op 112 to 111 [in the American edition of "The Voyage Out"], the 'goats certainly are mysterious and she thinks something 'must have dropped out', but does not 'see what to do with them now'. Leonard bought Bob's "The Death of Man" at Unwin's yesterday; it looks 'very well printed and bound'. Hopes Bob will 'take to prose', though this does not mean abandoning poetry; likes "Wind", the only poem in the new book which she has read yet, 'very much'; also if Bob can keep Desmond [MacCarthy] 'supplied' he may 'keep his spirits up': thinks Desmond 'is already a little burdened' since Jack Squire has now 'left the whole thing [editing the "New Statesman"] to him. Asks to be remembered to 'Mrs. Trevelyan, whom I dare not call by her Christian name'.
