Scope and content

The Mill House, Stanford Dingley, nr Reading, Berks. - Is sorry not to have written sooner: he is chair of his district council, which takes up 'all of [his] intellectual energy'. The district council also caused him to miss the opening of the library [the Trevelyan Memorial Library at Birkbeck College, London]; he was very sorry not to hear Morgan Forster's speech and would love to get hold of a copy. He is loth to bring out more than a small edition of the letters [between her husband and Robert Bridges] firstly as it would take time and he only has the weekends for the work, and secondly because Sir Edward Bridges is thinking of his own edition of his father's letters.
