Scope and content

Hôtel de Londres, Cava dei Tirreni. - Arrived here at 9 pm, will stay the night and go to Ravello tomorrow; in the morning he is visiting Corpo di Cava, two miles from here in the hills, where he stayed for two months five years ago on his first visit abroad. Had two hours at Rome; saw Guido [Reni]'s "Aurora" which he thought 'beastly'. His time at Milan with the Frys was 'delightful'; wishes only that he had been better; they saw Bessie's photographs and liked them; encourages her to be photographed again. Hopes her time at the dentist will not be too bad. Got jealous of two Germans who travelled with him from Rome to Naples 'behaving as [he and Bessie] behaved between Gouda and Utrecht'. Originally enclosing [John] McTaggart's letter.
