Scope and content

Harnham, Monument Green, Weybridge. - Is returning Leonardo. Will not go to Munich for now, perhaps in the new year. Draws attended to his amended address: the old house name, Glendore, was 'a bit much'; the are settling in, and he hopes to join the new Literary Society if invited. Is going to see 'The Knight of the Burning Pestle' at Cambridge tomorrow: asks if he is right in remembering that Trevelyan doesn't like it. Wishes that Trevelyan would move into his new house quickly, as he wants it for some 'people' of his [a reference to "A Room With A View"?]; also would like him to provide one 'with something to do and something to die of' . Saw George [Trevelyan?] the other day. Sends regards to Trevelyan's wife; he and [Hugh Owen?] Meredith called on her cousin but he was not there. Will be at West Hackhurst for the new year.
