Scope and content

Department of Civic Design, School of Architecture, University of Liverpool, Brownlow House, Liverpool. - Misunderstood Elizabeth Trevelyan's second letter when he suggested 'coming in Nov. just at the wrong time'. Since, however, she thinks that Bob will not be 'wholly absorbed by his theatrick acquaintance' [Gabriel Toyne, see 15/47?], Abercrombie could come on Saturday 13 October, after speaking at Leicester in the morning. Hope this will give her enough time to 'get Mr Watson'.
