Scope and content

Harnham, Monument Green, Weybridge. - Asks Trevelyan for recommendations of places in the Lake District where he and his mother could stay: 'not very remote - a little touristy'. Putnam's have taken 'the little story'. Has been looking at the 'Lucy' novel ["A Room With A View"] and is unsure about it, and how to finish it. Dined at [Goldsworthy Lowes] Dickinson's yesterday, and saw [Charles?] Masterman. Enjoyed his time in the New Forest. Note on the back of the envelope records that he is going to see "The Passive Resister" by Elizabeth Robins at Bradfield, and gives the cast of characters.
