Scope and content

25 Wellington Square, Chelsea, S.W.3. - Trevelyan has already sent him the poems of Suhrawardy; has read some but not yet carefully enough to comment. Would like to come to the Shiffolds in May if Bessy says he can: they will be 'once more grey-beards at play'. Tells Trevelyan to get a good [dental] plate. Looks forward to listening to his prose, and asks when the first volume of collected works will be out. Has been re-reading Morgan [Forster's] life of Goldie [Dickinson]: they should 'live in the past'.
