Scope and content

Goodman's Furze, Headley, Epsom. - Has got copies made of the correspondence between his father and her husband, which he sends, along with the twenty-two original letters she lent him from his father to her husband, and some from his mother and sister which he has not had copied. He also sends seven letters from her husband to his father and a copy of an eighth, the original of which was stuck into a book. Most of the letters were written in 1927 and 1928, and formed part of a series of letters preserved by his father from those to whom he had sent proof copies of the "Testament of Beauty". Has pencilled years on undated letters. He has no record of the comments and criticism which her husband made on this poem, and asks she would be willing to lend him the proof copies in which these were made. He also asks if he could be given the chance to acquire the letters if she ever thinks of parting with them.
