Scope and content

Garricks Villa. - Enjoyed Trevelyan's visit, and hearing his latest writing, though feels he needed to have read them to be able to comment helpfully; is sure that he appreciated the address to God and the reply. Wishes Trevelyan had stayed to lunch on Monday; feels the 'simple pleasures' need 'framing' in some way [a reference to "Simple Pleasures", published in "Horizon" in November 1941], and mentions a translation from the Chinese. Raymond Mortimer has come out to dine. Molly very cheerful today: these 'sudden down-pours never last long'.
