Scope and content

Ford Place, Arundel. - Trevy should not have sent his book ["The Bride of Dionysus"], but Pearsall Smith is glad to have a presentation copy, and is ordering some more for friends. Thinks it is a beautifully produced book; knows almost all of the poetry already but it is good to have it in print. Was sorry Trevy could not come to Greece; sure he would have enjoyed it as much as he himself did. Got Miss [Jane] Harrison to come with him; there were 'a number of charming people on board'; lists the places they visited. Trevy must come next year if he is not 'navigating the world' [a reference to his trip East with Goldsworthy Lowes Dickinson]. Is settling here now for a few months; has much material for 'a bigger book on '"Words", since the... faithless Muses' have deserted him; Trevy should come and stay for a couple of nights if he likes.
