Scope and content

Drayton Nurses Institution, 1 Drayton Terrace, South Kensington, S.W.5. - Thinks it is 'disgusting and scandalous' that Trevelyan has to pay for publication; would talk to Heinemann if he were up. His knee gets better slowly. Envies Trevelyan's forthcoming trip to Greece, and tells him not to worry about publishers while he is there; reassures him that his work is deeply appreciated by a small public, and the young are 'begging to recognise its quality'. Compares him to [Walter Savage] Landor.
