Scope and content

25 Wellington Square, Chelsea, S.W.3. - Is sorry that Trevelyan and Bessie 'turned out of bed at midnight' and missed him. Not as good a selection as Trevelyan made for him: thinks he ought to get his essays published, if there are enough to make a volume without translations. Will speak to Macmillan. It may be best for him to stay after Trevelyan comes back from Wales. Reviewed Irene's [Cooper Willis?] book, asks if Trevelyan was pleased.
