Scope and content

Woluwe, St Pierre, 52 avenue Parmentier - Has just read E. H. Alton's articles in 'Hermathena' ['The Mediaeval Commentators on Ovid's "Fasti"' and 'The Zulichemianus, Mazarinianus, and Other Mss. of the "Fasti" of Ovid'], discusses the copyists and dates of the manuscripts, including his view that the Bruxelles MS is earlier than Alton believes; M. Peeters is discouraged and sick, was injured in the war, has been told to stop smoking, has obtained a scholarship to study at the University of California at Berkeley, has taken against Alton's position, though Alton has done more research; Kugener regrets that he did not know of the articles before as the article wasn’t shared; Alton hopes to publish his edition at the end of the year; Krugener has finished looking at two manuscripts of the 'Fasti' at Anvers and has written an article for M. Sabbe; hopes Lady Frazer has recovered from influenza and hopes that she will send the books she has promised him; for his part he is still attempting to get the badge [for l’Ordre de Léopold?] that he was promised.
