Scope and content

170817 Lt. J.M. Luce c/o Grindlay's Bank, Bombay. - Is delighted by Trevelyan's "Windfalls", and carries his copy in the jungle. Discusses it at length, particularly the essay on solitariness, which reminded him of his trip to Greece, when Raymond Mortimer urged him and his father to get away from the main party. Also has a vivid recollection of Trevelyan "galumphing down the mountain to Berchtesgaden". Believes this form of writing must be Trevelyan's metier.
