Scope and content

6 Devonshire Place, W.1. - Asks Bob to forgive her for not thanking him before for his 'lovely poems at Christmas' [From the Shiffolds". He sees what she is now doing [organising the Busch concerts?]: a 'big task... with everything to arrange'. Adolf and Hedwig [Busch] came for two days last week en route to Switzerland, and will return with the Quartet in mid-April. All is going well. Postscript asking whether Bob had called in on her here one day: very sorry to have missed him if so. The 'Petrol ban is a curse' and she would have visited them at the Shiffolds long ago otherwise.
