Scope and content

39, Royal Terrace, Edinburgh. - The floor rehearsals [for Tovey and Trevelyan's opera "The Bride of Dionysus"] seem to be going well. Miss [Mona] Benson was not there last night, but only because she is not well. The Toveys will be glad to see him at any time: Donald thinks he will like to see Miss Benson's rehearsals. She thinks that the 'crisis is past' and Miss Benson will carry on. Hopes Bessie is better again: was sorry to hear that she was unwell.
