Scope and content

Was very sorry that Trevelyan did not come to Versailles on Sunday: the front, all gilded, was 'splendid to see under the autumn sun'. Thinks that Trevelyan will have enjoyed his afternoon at the concert, however; asks whether the programme was good. It has been agreed that they will go to hear their friend [Magdeleine Greslé] sing Debussy on 10 November; if Geoffrey [Hardern] has returned his presence would add to the charm of the occasion. Has had no news from him, though he promised to write. Has a little flu at the moment, so is 'in fashion'. Asks if they can put off their next meeting until next week: they could go to hear Esape [?] at the Comédie-Française, so asks him to save that trip for him, and not to be enticed by de Banville.
