Scope and content

2, Cheyne Gardens, S.W. - Thanks Bob for the book, which he will read with interest 'as the incident has always had a romantic attraction' for him; will send it back when Bob returns. Hopes the '(Georgian) poets abroad [Bob, Lascelles Abercrombie and Wilfrid Gibson] will have a good time'. Will send his essays ["Clio, a Muse and Other Essays"] to the Shiffolds; Bessie can keep it or send it out to Bob. Wrote to the "Times" about the "Sty Head" [see 13/230 and 14/87]; they are 'backing us [the campaigners against a road being built over the pass] up' as is the "Spectator", but it is 'a standing and permanent menace' and vigilance is needed. Hopes Julian will get a 'nice nurse'.
