Scope and content

25 Wellington Square, Chelsea, S.W. - Will be with Trevelyan on the 12th or 13th; does not promise to bring many 'mags' as he may want to forget he ever wrote any. Is dismayed that he may have to change to get to Ockley; jokingly doubts that he will be able to cope. Looks forward to playing chess, and to shaving with Trevelyan while Bessy reads to them; says they should only talk of 'very old troubles', such as getting Moore to welcome Bertie [Russell] on an Easter Reading Party, or 'Chinese Labour'.
