Scope and content

Plas Penrhyn, Penrhyndeudraeth, Merioneth. - Thanks Elizabeth for his birthday letter. She has been very kind to Alan Wood [writer of "Bertrand Russell: The Passionate Sceptic"?], who is 'duly grateful'; thinks Wood has done a very good job. Often thinks of how hard it must be for her not to be able to read: wishes she could find someone to read as well as she used to, 'in the days when I used to urge you not to skip the footnotes!'.
