Scope and content

Copse Cottage, Fernhurst, Haslemere. - Has thought sine he left Edward on Monday that he was 'overheated' in his defence of V[aughan] Williams; though 'every one has the right or rather the duty of defending his friends' just as everyone has the right 'or call it duty too' of criticising those he disapproves of, he thinks he went in his 'heated and clumsy manner of defense' beyond what was justified by Marsh's criticism. He 'got to know [Vaughan Williams] and like him a lot' at Bayreuth, but quite understands that 'if you don't happen to find the likeable part, you are bound to dislike him'. Marsh cannot come next Sunday as Bob Is playing [rugby] at Harrow on Saturday then going to the [Hans] Richter concert on Monday with Tucket [Ivor Lloyd Tuckett?]; hopes it will be better, since the 'program looks more promising', and that he will see Marsh there.
