Scope and content

The New Statesman, 10, Gt. Queen Street, Kingsway, London, W.C. - Recommends that Trevelyan should send his lecture to "The Calendar [of Modern Letters" and reserve the MS for "The Criterion"; he should also 'get [his] ears thoroughly cleansed'. Envies him his forthcoming trip to Italy. Bessie should send her stories: thinks he can get them placed somewhere; will enquire about Moses. Jokingly asks Trevelyan to let him know if he sees a 'nice little Nicola di Cicala or a Grottaferrata' for sale at a good price in Italy, and tells him not to miss the keystone sculpture of the porch of the basilica di S. Silvestro at Poggi-Bonzi, discussed by 'Thode, Strzygowski, Peraté and Venturi'.
