Scope and content

12 Pembroke Gardens, Kensington, W. - It is just like Trevelyan to generously put in a word for his translation [of a short story by Eduard von Keyserling, see 6/54]. Is having the story typed and has written to the editor [of the "New Quarterly", Desmond MacCarthy] asking whether he should send it. There is a fair amount of 'good, thoughtful work by these clever modern Germans' which ought to be translated and published in the better sort of reviews. Mentions the heat. Hopes little Paul [Trevelyan] is bearing up.
