Scope and content

33 Ossington Street, Bayswater. - Returns Trevelyan's "Ode": does not think 'Jimmy' has 'done it very nicely'; she has changed a few words at the beginning to keep the alcaic stanza. Loved doing it, and says Trevelyan's poetry almost translates itself; he 'ought to have been a German poet'. Is delighted that he is still keen on German and continues to read and learn it by heart; they should do some more some day. Is working on the short History of Poland from the 'Aigle Blanc' ["Poland and the Polish Nation", by Drogoslaw?]; Mr Reade lets her read it to him which is a great help. Hopes Trevelyan had a good time in Scotland. The Sickerts are keeping very well; Oswald writes 'cheerful and amusing letters mostly about Japanese plays'; thinks he said he was sending Trevelyan some picture postcards of actors.
