Scope and content

Fourways, Gomshall. - Has now read Trevelyan's poem ["The Dream"] and thanks him for 'such a lovely Christmas gift'. The philosophy of the poem reminds her of William Blake, who repeatedly 'affirms that Man is the only God', and in the "Marriage of Heaven and Hell" shows that 'the rebel Lucifer is inherently one with the Saviour Christ'. Quotes Henry Nevinson as often saying 'Pity is a rebel passion'. Everyone enjoyed Trevelyan's visit last Sunday; the others will also enjoy reading the poem and want her to express thanks on their behalf.
