Scope and content

Boveney, near Windsor. - Melodie [his wife, Elodie] says that Mrs Trevelyan may lend her clavichord for the Turin exhibition; he should have given his answer on 2 December, but 'under the circumstances' has asked for a delay; still must let them know by Friday night. Asks her to let him know at once whether she is sending hers. This is a 'most important exhibition'; the request to send something is a 'great honour'. Melodie cannot come to Dorking on Friday, as she has some ''extremely important music to perform' at his next concert and 'all [emphasised] her time' is needed for Surrey. They both send regards to the Trevelyans.
