Scope and content

Trinity. - Thanks Bob for the letter; thinks the music box [his and Charles's wedding present to Bob and Bessie] is a good find. The McT[aggart]s are 'delighted with their china'. Too busy to come to see Bob before going to Holland for the weather, but would be happy to see him in Cambridge, or may see him by chance when he is in London 'on various businesses' on Monday and Tuesday. Has taken to heart much of what Bob said to him about writing last summer, and tries to employ 'slow careful and thoughtful work at style' for his longer essays at least. Tom Moore is coming to Cambridge on Sunday; tells Bob to come as well if he can.
