Scope and content

1 Rue Royale, St. Cloud. - She and her friend [Magdeleine Greslé] thank Trevelyan for the information he has given them [on musical contacts in Britain, see 22/26], which her friend will put to use when she returns from Spain. Thinks Magdeleine's agent here, [Arthur] Dandelot, will happily get in contact with the person Trevelyan names, and Florent Schmitt or Ravel can write what they think of her. They leave on 10 January for Barcelona, then Bilbao, and she thinks Madrid at the end of the month, where Madame Greslé is giving one or two concerts; they will continue to Malaga where she is giving two concerts, and another in Madrid on the way back; is unsure of exact dates except from the concert at Barcelona, on 13 January. Knows Madame Greslé is singing Debussy's "La Damoiselle Elue", with [Fernandez] Arbos, but does not know where since the Spanish impresario is a fool, and 'one learns the news when one arrives in the cities [where the concerts are due to be]'. They received Trevelyan's letter of introduction to his friends 'with joy', but do not know if they will be able to profit from it. Thanks him for everything.
