Scope and content

100 Weston Road, Gloucester. - Thanks Trevelyan for this year's poems from the Shiffolds, without which Christmas would be incomplete. Asks what he thinks of Eddie Marsh's translations of Horace [published 1941]; Luce considers they catch the spirit of Horace, if not the form, very well. Has not been to see Joan [Allen] again due to problems with leave; had a weekend with the Waleys and met Stephen's fiancée [Mary King], whom he thought charming, though the visit was not successful as Stephen and his mother were ill in bed. Luce's father has not heard anything more about passage to Burma. Sandra is here looking well. They all send love to the Trevelyans, and Miss SImpkins.
