Scope and content

5 Raymond Buildings, Grays Inn. - Supposes it is Bob who has sent him the "Bride of D[ionysus]", and thanks him if so; had already got it and read it yesterday. Hopes he will 'live to see the opera'; thinks Bob has given Donald [Tovey] 'splendid chances'. Likes it a lot as a play, especially the last act, especially Ariadne's dream. Does not 'always follow [Bob's] vers libres', but blames his 'own stupidity'. Saw Bob the other day at D[onald]'s concert, but was in the middle of a row so couldn't get to him. They might meet at one of the other concerts, but the dates are not good for him; thinks he will be 'away with Winston [Churchill] in the yacht for most of them'. Asks Bob if he will write his poem 'Proud mayst though be...' ["For a Fan"] in the book which Marsh has started a collection of autograph poems. Hopes they will meet soon for a talk; has 'got lots of new pictures' since Bob was last here.,
