Scope and content

48 Clarendon Rd, W.11. Has been too long in thanking Bob - if she may 'still use that familiarity' - for his pamphlet ["From the Shiffolds"]. Hears 'echoes of [his] life from time to time through the younger generation'; thinks her 'young cousin Tony' [Anthony Fry?] has been to see him, who she believes in 'as an artist & a person'. Hopes that both Trevelyans keep well: 'happy one can't be now... though of course the sun warms the top-soil from time to time'; afraid there will not be a peace sufficient to 'remedy this deep distrust of the future', though perhaps one which will 'outlast our own generation'.
