Scope and content

The Park, Prestwich, Manchester. - Kind of Robert to send her his book ["Aftermath"], 'so attractively issued by the Hogarth Press'; likes the 'soft green' of the binding. Is glad to see Robert's 'touching' poems to [Gordon] Bottomley, [Goldsworthy] Lowes Dickinson and D[esmond] MacCarthy again, and glad that the book has already been 'so favourably reviewed'. Very sorry to hear that so many copies of his "Collected Poems" were destroyed last winter [in the Blitz on London]; many works cannot be sold because of publishers' losses. Sends love to 'dear Elizabeth', and thanks for her letter with news of Julian. 'Strange' to think he is in the 'heart of Africa', and expects he will have very interesting things to tell when they see him next; expects he is 'revelling in tropical heat'. Her daffodils are doing well, and the lawn is very green.
