Scope and content

Pen Rose, Berkhamsted. - Has got the typescript [of Bessie's translation of Robert Fruin's "The Siege and Relief of Leyden in 1574"], and will begin reading it 'most eagerly'; the map looks 'just what one wants'; will read it at once; begins his 'peregrinations' to Cornwall, Ireland and elsewhere at the end of next week, so asks if he should return the typescript before he leaves then get it back when they meet in Northumberland at the end of August; perhaps by then he can see [Pieter] Geyl's notes, which he ought to see before writing a preface. She may wish him to keep it if it is a duplicate. Apologises, but he knows no-one connected with Bumpus [John and Edward Bumpus Ltd, publisher?]
