Scope and content

26 Addison Avenue, W.11. - Thanks Bob for his Christmas present "From the Shiffolds" and the two letters; has been a 'pleasure' to read some of the poems that he heard Bob read the other day. Thinks he liked "Epistle to my Grandson" and "Ten Years After" best, perhaps because he heard them read aloud, he would probably have picked them as the best without that. He 'catch[es] on to least' the translations from Catullus, whom he thinks untranslatable in 'those short concentrated moods', though it is interesting to see Bob experimenting, and he 'enjoyed the whole collection'. Sends best wishes to the Trevelyans for Christmas and New Year. Notes in a postscript that his new address is 'Addison Avenue [emphasised].
