Scope and content

I Tatti, Settignano, Florence. - Glad to hear Bessie enjoys being alive in a lovely landscape; he can say the same, though old age is tiresome. Will happily send the photograph, though Nicky is not sure which one Bessie wants: is it the one of him in a chaise longue? Il Frulino [sic: usually 'Il Frullino'] was Mary's house before they married; Bob used to stay there too. Will soon go to Vallombrosa to escape the summer heat.
