Scope and content

106 Columbia H[eigh]ts, Brooklyn. - Sends congratulations to the Trevelyans on the birth of their son [Paul], and hopes he will see 'all three ere long'. All going well with them; saw 'quite a little of Roger [Fry] when he was here'; regrets Roger thinks 'six weeks all too long to devote to us poor American mortals'. [George] Santayana dined here recently, with an introduction from Roger; he reminds Field 'of B.B. [Bernard Berenson] in more ways than one', but he thinks he has a 'less lovable nature'. Santayana is lecturing on aesthetics in Brooklyn to 'a small but appreciative audience'. Thanks Trevelyan for his card to his mother; Paul is a good name, as is Trevelyan, which goes well with it.
