Scope and content

86 Walton St. - Thanks Bob for 'another fine fruit from [his] inexhaustible cornucopia' [the translation of the Homeric "Hymn to Demeter" in this year's "From the Shiffolds"]. Does not have a text to compare Bob's version with, but enjoyed the 'very lively narrative'; finds Demeter an 'unpleasant character'. Has just read Paul Nash's "Outline"; they 'both come very well out of' it, though Marsh 'resents being told' he 'recited Kubla Khan in a voice that reminded him of Mr Punch'.
