Scope and content

West Hackhurst, Abinger Hammer, Dorking. - Hoped to ring up today, but the telephone is still in the open Post Office, 'pending Lord Farrer's pleasure' so is not private. Is not sure when they will be able to meet: expects she will not be receiving visitors for some time in the Nursing Home. Went to a bottle party at Julian and Ursula [Trevelyan's] with Raymond Mortimer. His mother sends love and sympathy. Is glad her impressions of Whiting and the nursing home are good.
