Scope and content

8 Cheyne Gardens, S.W. - Encloses more prospectuses. Is glad Trevelyan liked the first issue of the "N.Q." ["New Quarterly"] Agrees that the Arthur Symons piece was weak. Is in bed with rheumatism and dictating this letter; hopes to go to the seaside with his 'lady emanuensis' in a few days: Molly sends regards to the Trevelyans. G.L.S. 'Stracheys' a few points in Beddoes' favour in his piece, but it is still very interesting. The second page also used for a list of names, some crossed through or asterisked, beginning with Mrs Crompton and Mrs Widdrington and including Santayana, R.E.F. [Fry], Masefield, H. Joachim etc.
