Scope and content

52 Elmwood Avenue. - Masood has left; he has written on Urdu poetry for the "Athenaeum"; Forster gives his address. Received Trevelyan's letter at Edinburgh; he and Mrs [Florence] Barger, when on a walk in the Pentlands, found an arrangement of stones forming the initials 'G.M.T' which they altered to 'R.C.T'. Hopes Trevelyan had a good time in Spain; will be at West Hackhurst at some point so may see him. Caught the Glasgow boat to Belfast to stay with [Hugh Owen] Meredith, though fears 'the birth of god will be disarranging the traffic' on his return.
