Scope and content

La Fortezza, Aulla, Massa Carrara, Italy. - Arrived last Sunday, and will stay some weeks here; the weather is 'beautiful' and the sun quite warm, though north of the Apennines in Lombardy there was '6 or 8 inches of snow'. Is staying in the castle with Aubrey Waterfield; Mrs Waterfield is in England but will return soon. Travelled out with his friends the Allens, who will go on to Naples in a few days leaving Robert here. Bessie saw them off on Friday; has had a postcard from her already. Julian 'wrote quite happily from school lat week'.

Life in the castle is 'very quiet, but very pleasant'; the views of the Carraras and Apennines from the roof garden are 'very wonderful'. Hopes to begin working today or tomorrow, since 'at first one wants just to look about at things, and recover from two days journey'. Hopes his parents are well and that the weather is good. Sends love to Aunt Annie and to his father, to whom he will write soon. Enjoyed his visit to Welcombe very much.
