The Green Farm, Timworth, Bury St. Edmunds - Is sorry that he will not be able to come to Seatoller: originally enclosing a notice of a lecture he is to give on 14th July; he is also to 'dine with the Erewhonians' the following night, and had hoped to see Trevelyan there. Rachel [his daughter] is beginning to put on weight. Enjoyed the [Apostles'] dinner. Is working on his lecture, his first to an informed audience, and hopes to raise some money and impress an agent. Believes Robin Mayor is going to send him an article on the 'comico-poetic' about Trevelyan's "Sisyphus".
