Scope and content

17 Pembroke Gardens, Kensington. - Thought the [Apostles'] dinner a great success, including Trevelyan's speech. The new age limit [for conscription] will cause Trevelyan difficulties: does not know whether the Tribunals recognise objections to service which are not connected to religion. Does not share Trevelyan's pacifist principles, but knows they are genuine: a phonograph recording of their argument over the Boer war would be convincing evidence that it is not just this war Trevelyan objects to. Hopes that the Tribunal will meet him 'half way'. Sends regards to Donald [Tovey?] if he is still there, and to Bessie.
