Scope and content

University College London, Gower Street WC1. - Glad to hear the Master has now issued his report of the speeches at the opening of the Trevelyan Memorial Library; looks forward to reading them when next in Birkbeck. Still feels it is a pity to publish only a few copies of the correspondence between her husband and Robert Bridges, but can do nothing about it; does not know Sir Edward Bridges at all. Suggests a compromise which might interest Gathorne-Hardy: if he offered the text of the letters to a literary magazine such as "Essays in Criticism" or "The London Magazine" the letters would reach a wide readership, and Gathorne-Hardy would have 50 copies as offprints. His family are well. Hopes that she and Mrs Jones are well.
