Letter from George Macaulay Trevelyan to R. C. Trevelyan

Garden Corner, West Road, Cambridge. - Marked 'Private'. Wants to tell Bob and Bessie before they see it in the press that he is to be Master of Trinity: the Prime Minister's letter came today and he will reply with his acceptance on Sunday. The Fellows are anxious for him to accept, particularly as it is not clear 'whom Winston would appoint' if George refused and there are some plausible candidates they do not want. 'Everybody concerned has been so kind' that George 'cannot leave them in the lurch'; Janet insists he must accept, though he knows she 'will be the loser'. He 'did not want to be Master', and doubts he would ever have accepted if peace had continued, but he feels that he has 'no other war work... of any real importance', and Hallington has been taken over by the R.A.F.; feels he must try. Finds it a 'tragi-comic irony' that the 'crash of civilization' has put him in the Lodge of 'Montagu Butler and Whewell and Bentley''; though they will not move in until January 'and meanwhile it may be destroyed by a bomb!'.

Letter from R. C. Trevelyan to Sir George Trevelyan

The Shiffolds, Holmbury St. Mary, Dorking. - Thanks his father for sending back the Maupassants [see 46/338], and also for the Saturday Review. He and Bessie were very much interested in his father's letter 'as a delightful bit of biography and autobiography', as was his 'chapter in the Life of Dr Butler [The Harrow Life of Henry Montagu Butler]'. Wonders where the quote about 'Gladstone rising to make his reply to Disraeli' came from;: 'perhaps from Morley's Life [of Gladstone]'.

The only time he himself 'ever saw or heard Disraeli' was when his mother took him, he thinks 'as a boy of seven or eight... into the Ladies' Gallery [at the House of Commons]'; of course he has 'only a very dim recollection of him', especially since his short-sightedness meant he 'could not see him distinctly'.

'[B]eautiful Spring weather here today', with the leaves 'coming out everywhere, though not on the oaks yet'. Has 'just been assisting Julian to shave himself'; he now has to shave 'twice or even three times a week'.

Letter from Sir George Trevelyan to R. C. Trevelyan

Welcombe, Stratford on Avon. - Can never write this date 'without thoughts' [a reference to Napoleon's victory at Austerlitz, and the coup by Louis Napoleon in 1851?]. Would like to have the [Times] "Literary Supplement" [of November 25, 1920; pg. 778; Issue 984] back; suggest that Robert should copy out both sets of verses. Those by 'Bobus' Smith were 'deeply felt by Macaulay' in the last months of his life but Sir George did not mention that in his letter to the "Literary Supplement" since so much by him on the subject has gone into print recently, in his chapter in the "Life" of Butler and in the second volume of Roosevelt's biography. Very glad to hear of Julian writing a 'good and sightly letter' ; 'Each letter is then an education in itself'. Looking forward to seeing Robert and his family; has not been well recently, but it is difficult to tell how much is illness and how much old age.

Letter from Sir George Trevelyan to R. C. Trevelyan

Wallington, Cambo, Morpeth. - The news of Julian seems 'very satisfactory and hopeful'; glad to have Robert's account of Wendover. Is just finishing [Edward] Graham's life of [Henry Montagu] Butler at Harrow, which is very nicely done; will make a present of it to Robert if he does not have a copy; would much like him to see his introductory chapter, which is the 'last piece of prose he will ever write for print'; published his last verse fifty four years ago; quotes Juvenal.

Letter from Sir George Trevelyan to R. C. Trevelyan

Wallington, Cambo, Morpeth. - Notes what Robert says about [Aeschylus's] "Choephoroi"; is reading [Sophocles's] "Philoctetes" with 'delight and eagerness'. Sends Robert the dust cover of the biography of Butler ["The Harrow Life of Henry Montagu Butler", by Edward Graham]; the title seems 'worthy'; his own contribution is a long narrative chapter, which he likes better than anything he has done before - 'but that is always the case with an old man's writing'.
