Scope and content

Chilswell, Boar's Hill. - Thanks Trevelyan for the copy of Suhrawardy's poems, which she has shared with Elizabeth. Expected them to be mystical, so was a little disappointed with the love poems. Likes "In the Earth unbroken", "The Cotswolds" and "In Russia". Does not have Suhrawardy's address, and asks Trevelyan, when he next writes, to thank him for remembering her with a copy; hopes she will see him when he comes to England. Has taken an interest in a blind man, Harry Booth, son of an unemployed Yorkshire miner, who won a scholarship to Oxford and wrote a B.Litt. thesis on "Robert Bridges and the poetry of today". Hopes he can get better work than reading Braille proofs, 'very tedious and ill-paid': thinks he could teach well.
