Scope and content

Palaza de Oriente, 8, principal, Apartado 847, Madrid. - If Trevelyan wants something different, will not get it closer than in Spain; the country towns are 'the most attractive imaginable'; he must stay in Madrid with Sickert, who has three bedrooms, a bathroom and sitting room looking out 'on the prettiest place in Madrid'; will add to the change that he does not know Spanish; will only be warm if he goes south, but will probably be sunny. 'Nothing nice in Madrid but the pictures in the Prado' and friends. Tells him to come soon.
