Scope and content

The Shiffolds, Holmbury St. Mary, Dorking. - Thanks MacCarthy, and thinks he has some good ideas [on Shelley's "Epipsychidion", sent for him to review? See 4/120] but it may take him a while to get them down as he must go to Cambridge this week and London on Thursday. Is generally happy to accept MacCarthy's criticism: is just sensitive when a friend's work is concerned [a reference to his review of Gordon Bottomley's "Gruach", see 4/119?] Did leave a brown scarf behind, 'an old and intimate friend', will drop in to collect it. If MacCarthy can find books that 'would not unduly provoke her moral fanaticism', Irene [Cooper Willis] would appreciate some to review, as she is short of money.
