Scope and content

Was 'so touched' to find her name with Tom's in Bob's first volume [of his "Collected Works"]: thanks him very much for her 'share' in his 'most handsome present'. Tom's [Collected Works] seems 'quite small' beside it. Good to find 'old friends' along with new ones amongst the poems; hopes Bob will get good reviews, but 'reviewers nowadays seem very careless', so 'good poets must take little notice of them'. Poets' 'best admirers do not get into print'. Hopes that both Trevelyans are well, and Bessie's eyes are not 'too much tried by the summer light'.
