Letter from 'Jack' [François Ceccaldi] to 'Flaminica' [Lady Frazer]

54 Cours Napoléon, Ajaccio, Corse - Mrs Kerr is returning to London, received a letter of thanks from her and a letter from the Admiral apologising for not visiting; did not realise that [Harold] Macmillan was allied with the 9th Duke of Devonshire by marriage; does not know the Comte de Noüe, whom she was to visit; Madame de Pange is about to present a paper on Schlegel and Madame de Staël at the Sorbonne. Accompanied by the envelope addressed to Grosvenor Hotel, London.

Letter from Arthur Ransome to R. C. Trevelyan

Low Ludderburn. - Bad luck that Trevelyan found Dan Macmillan away; has just had a note from Harold Macmillan to say that Dan was ill and that 'he and his partners' would go into the matter once [Trevelyan's] books arrive. Hardly knows Harold; it might be a good thing to wait until Dan recovers. Emphasises that Trevelyan should send a typescript of his "Selected Poems" rather than a pile of books to look through: even the best of publishers have 'hardly any imagination at all' and need help to 'see' the book waiting to be brought out. Has very much enjoyed looking through Trevelyan's work again: "Pusska" is 'particularly incandescent' for the Ransomes at the moment for 'a special reason curled up in a basket'.
