Scope and content

Tilton, Firle, Sussex. - Likes Bob's poem on Goldie [Lowes Dickinson] 'enormously'; thought it 'entirely suitable' for the "N.S. and N" ["New Statesman and Nation"], particularly at the moment when 'thoughts of Goldie and what preoccupied him are so very appropriate', and has showed it to Raymond Mortimer, who visited at the weekend. Mortimer took it away, and will be in touch with Bob; he liked it 'very much' and his only concern is its length. Is recovering 'awfully slowly' [after a heart attack] and has been 'out of action for a year and a half', but is getting better steadily, and can now get 'a fair amount of work' done; hopes to be up at Cambridge for a 'good part of next term'. Read a paper on the effect "Principia Ethiica" had on him when an undergraduate at the Memoir Club this month, and writing about [G.E.] Moore brought back 'vivid memories of [Bob] in those days'.
