Scope and content

Addresses Trevelyan as Aldebarantiphoscophormio, at The Mill House, Wescott, Dorking. - Would love to pay a farewell visit to the Mill House, if he is not staying with Russell. Disappointed Trevelyan does not agree with 'EVERY WORD' of his article; is now writing on G. P. R. James. Quotes exchange with Jenks on the title. Hopes Trevelyan saw his remarks on the London gas supply, is 'going to drop literature and go in for politics'; has abandoned fiction and begun his autobiography.
