Scope and content
Ivy Holt, Dorking. - Saw [Reginald Brimley] Johnson yesterday for a long talk [about Bob's book, "Polyphemus and Other Poems", with illustrations by Fry]; outlines the agreement they have made; suggests the best way to look at it is as a bargain between Bob and Johnson, if Bob can 'see [his] way' to paying Fry another ten pounds. Does not like the 'alteration of having separate pages' for the illustrations, but thinks it can be made to look good. Saw B.B. [Bernard Berenson] yesterday and he agreed the plan was possible. Gives a 'rough sketch of the way [he will] treat the page of design'; hopes Bob will approve.
