Scope and content

6 Erskine Hill, Golders Green, N.W.11. - His letter was sent off before he really finished it; has 'much more to say'. Knew the poem about G.L.D. [Goldsworthy Lowes Dickinson] already: it gave him 'intense pleasure' and he is glad to have it 'in permanent form'. Is 'quite delighted' with the poem to Desmond [MacCarthy]. Bob's work is 'solid' and 'well worth enshrining in a solid form''; already had "The Death of Man", "The Pterodamozels" and a couple of others. Is 'working away, but behind the scenes' except for his pamphlet ["The case for an early peace"] and the 'occasional speech'; does not know if it will do any good, but hopes so'.
