Scope and content

East Hendred, Wantage, Berkshire. - Thanks Bob for sending "Aftermath", which will need a leisurely reading' to appreciate fully, as it is a 'considerable body of verse'; has though glanced through and seen that he is 'familiar' with many of the pieces. Envies Bob for 'being able to publish so plump a collection in these days of parsimony': has himself 'cumbersome arrears' of unpublished material. His "Alert" has gone into a second impression, so perhaps his publishers will be willing to bring out a 'further selection'. Anticipates 'much pleasure' from "Aftermath".
