Scope and content

25, Wellington Square, S.W.3. - Looking forward to his visit: will be 'very good and set an example to Bob'. Molly is at Rose Cottage; will soon begin her new book. Thinks he will only be able to come for nine weeks, not ten; will not muddle 'Dorking Town & Dorking Harbour' this time. Their 'little black Tom cat' had seven kittens on Friday night. Lunched today with Alys and Logan [Pearsall Smith]; thinks Logan is better. Will bring down Sarawad's [sic, corrected to Suhrawardy in pencil] poems which Bob gave him, and Irene C.W.'s [Cooper Willis] book on Emily Bronte, if he can find them; says he knows Irene's book 'by heart' and can repeat it if necessary.
