Bologna. - Notes that letters should be send to 2 Cheyne Gardens, as they will be forwarded. Is thinking of Bob and Bessie, and 'waiting to hear good news' [Bessie is due to give birth]. Will be in Rome soon, which he always enjoys; finds it strange that in Italy he always 'feel[s] a kind of dissatisfaction' until he is there, however much he is enjoying himself elsewhere. Will spend a fortnight in Naples in March, which 'will be an effort'; fortunately he will be able to stay with 'one of the Huxley youths [Julian], a grandson of the [emphasised, i.e. Thomas]', Jan's cousin who is working at the marine biological station there. Huxley is 'a clever fellow and very nice and a good liberal... curious how much one cares about that nowadays'. Janet will let him know [when the baby is born]: is anxious to spare Bob and Bessie trouble so they need not telegraph him or write. in a postscript, sends love to Caroline if she is with them.
