Scope and content

Lilac Cottage, Grantchester Rd, Cambridge. - Thanks Trevelyan for sending his poems, which she is much enjoying: good to have 'real poetry', and to feel 'one will go on finding true pleasure as time passes'. Sure Gerald [her husband] will also love them. He has just recovered from a 'bad attack of Bronchitis' and has been left 'very tired'. Is 'so glad' Trevelyan likes Mr Wood's [?] poems: the one which she seems to like best at the moment is dedicated to her, but there are many she likes very much. Asks him to give their joint regards to Mrs Trevelyan; will 'always remember' her kindness.
