Scope and content

216 L.A.A. Bty. R.A., 151 Castle Boulevard, Nottingham. - Looks forward to receiving Trevelyan's new book of poems ["Aftermath"?]. Returns "Adonais", which he enjoyed very much. Has just finished Santayana's "The Last Puritan", which is beautifully written but sometimes insipid, and "The Quest for Corvo" [by A. J. A. Symons], as recommended by Joan [Allen] which he loved. Asks if Trevelyan could lend him an easy novel in Italian.
