Scope and content

Royal Artillery Barracks, Handel St, London EC. - Just missed Trevelyan, as he could not be at [W.H.] Davies when Trevelyan was [see 17/104]; he told Thomas about the agreement. Does not want to 'dispute anything of this kind now', and would have agreed to do as Gordon [Bottomley] and the others do anyway, so will accept the terms [for the inclusion of his poems in "An Annual of New Poetry"]. Looks forward to the book; does not think he will be able to correct his own proofs, as he will be at Trowbridge or Shoeburyness, possibly in France; would like to see them after Gordon looks through them as he has promised. Paul Nash is now in a cadet unit at Camberley, and Thomas supposes he will have an infantry commission soon, before he himself has an artillery one. If he has leave he still hopes to get up to Silverdale; was too unwell during his recent leave to do anything but stay at home. He and Nash had 'some fine days before he went'. Signs off as 'Edward Thomas, i.e. Cadet P.E. Thomas', which reminds him to check in a postscript that Trevelyan is going to let him use 'Edward Eastaway' as a pseudonym for the "Annual".
