Scope and content

Casa Boccaccio, Settignano, Florence, Italy. - Can only send a few stamps as a birthday present, but they may be 'better than nothing, if only as swops; not sure if the Italian "Croce Rossa" stamp is a proper one, but will let him know. Is taking the tram to Florence today to see a concert by a German quartet; the first violin, [Adolf] Busch, is a 'great friend of uncle [Donald] Tovey and uncle Julius [Röntgen]', who think he is 'the best violinist of the time'. Hope Julian is better and back at school; Elizabeth says she will visit him there next Saturday before going to the Netherlands for a few weeks; Robert will return about the same time she does; sends love to the [Thomas Sturge] Moores.
