Scope and content

East Hills, Albury, Guildford. - Apologising for not thanking Bob earlier for his poems ["From the Shiffolds"]; particularly the first one, as she has 'lost [her] heart to Philip Erasmus'; supposes he is still at the Shiffolds.. Is also reading Bob's translation of the "Georgics". Hopes [Arthur Waley's?] "Monkey" reached him safely. It reminded her of 'our nursery religions & magic rites when Noah & the good & bad Kangaroo rule our games'; when Claud was bored he 'used to lift a corner of a rug' and say that Noah was telling him they should play something else. Would like to hear Bob's opinion on [Algernon Cecil's] "A House in Bryanston Square" if he reads it, but would not recommend it.
