Scope and content

W[est] H[ackhurst]. - Thanks Trevelyan for his "Dream": can't say anything about its technique; thinks it read easily for the most part. Finds the part which considers whether 'culture' will continue most moving; agrees that 'if Love did - or could - worship Reason it would be best', though is not sure whether Christ is what he means by Love. Max [Beerbohm?] should be pleased with the reference to his Bacon. Hopes Trevelyan has sent a copy to Leonard [Woolf]. Sat by George [Macaulay Trevelyan] at the Feast at King's and went to lunch with him, when he showed Forster some of his books; Robin Mayor and A. V. Hill [?] were stopping there. Is reading Moliere.

      A pencil annotation above 'A. V. Hill' reads 'A.K. Hill', but no likely candidate for these initials has been found.
