Unsigned postcard sent from I Tatti to R. C. Trevelyan

Postmarked Firenze; addressed to Trevelyan at Villa I Tatti, Settignano (Firenze). - The household at I Tatti wish that Trevelyan were with them in the library, though there would probably be only one topic of conversation 'and that a very disagreeable one'. Feels Trevelyan is wise not to come; they may soon themselves be 'swept away by a great tidal wave of patriotism and bloodlust'. Sends congratulations on Bessie's restored health.

5 Selwyn Gardens, Cambridge. - Printed thanks from Margaret and Helen Verrall for the condolences of their friends, with handwritten message from Margaret Verrall thanking the Trevelyans for their sympathy and what they write about her husband.

Asks if they could write to Margaret Parratt asking her to tell Herbert in Egham at once to send two bottles, not directly to Donald but to Mrs Trevelyan at the Shiffolds. This is the new tonic he last received from the doctor. Would be very grateful. Bessie Trevelyan already cares for Donald; asks if they know she is also Dutch.

Postmarked Bad Nauheim. - Thanks Bessie for her letter; had begun to think that D[onald Tovey] had gone to Scotland, since they were hoping he would visit.
