Scope and content

Casa Boccaccio, Thursday. - Glad to hear that Trevelyan got home safe. Waterfield has not yet seen the Mothersills. Has not yet heard from Wilfrid [Gibson] but presumes he is married and gone to the Gallows. The Abercrombies start from home on Monday and go straight to Grange [over Sands] on Wednesday; Marsh has asked them to lunch but there may not be time. "La Julia Grassa" has not returned, for which they are grateful, the "real Julia is doing admirably for us". This trip to Italy seems to have been even better than the last [in 1911]: very kind of Waterfield to have them at Aulla; the drive from Fivizzano to Castlenuovo was "glorious"; they liked Lucca too but the "zanzare" [mosquitos] plagued them; excellence of the wine provided by Will [Arnold-Forster] at Montefiano. Cannot sufficiently express their gratitude to Trevelyan. Sends love to Trevelyan, his family, and the Bottomleys. His wife asks for the name and address of Grant Watson's mother-to-be at Grange, as they have a book to return.
