Scope and content

20 Hinde House, Hinde Street, Manchester Square, W.1. - Very kind of Bob to send her "Windfalls"; hopes he can 'spare it', since Logan [Pearsall Smith] told her 'it can't be got' but that he had let Bob know she would like it. Enjoys the [essay] "Pleasures", and lists some she would add herself, such as 'the croaking of frogs in the hills.. 'the hot smell of hedge & ditch flowers in the sun... bicycling (with one's feet up) down a long hill'. Would also include 'walking abt London in an air-raid with fine sky effects and tremendous noises' under Bob's 'Fearful Pleasures' heading, as '[t]his is exhilarating'. The book is the kind she likes. Hopes Bob has now recovered from 'crossing the road amid traffic... too fearful a pleasure'. Hears of him occasionally from the Lynds. Is reading George's "[English] Social History", and finding it 'absorbing'; wishes he would publish the 'pre-Chaucer part soon'.
