Scope and content

98 Grenfell Road, Maidenhead, Berks. - Knows that after the publication of Trevelyan's book ["Windfalls"] and the praise by Desmond MacCarthy in the "Sunday Times" he must be so "inundated with thanks and appreciation" that there will be scant space for her 'little poor words', but wanted to let him know of her appreciation. Lists some of her favourite pieces, including the appreciation of [Robert] Browning and childhood reminiscences. Would much appreciate a few lines from him in reply. Asks him to excuse her handwriting; after an accident a few years ago she is unable to walk. Hopes he is well in 'these so difficult days'.
