Scope and content

as from 39 Bruntsfield Place, Edinburgh. - Apologises for not replying to Trevelyan's letter earlier; is taking a few days holiday but ill be back in time for the rehearsal on Easter Monday. Thanks him very much for the 'very helpful description of Act III's scenery [for Tovey and Trevelyan's opera "The Bride of Dionysus"]. Asks if she may write about 'the making-up of the principals etc' when she returns. As for the dresses, thinks it would be best or Clarksons or Simmonds' people came the beginning of the week before the opera. The fee which Trevelyan proposes for her is 'very generous'. They are starting Act III on Monday; will write again early next week.
