Scope and content

Thorpeness, Suffolk. - Robert's 'attractive book of translations' [this year's "From the Shiffolds"?] has just arrived; her morning is busy, but she has already 'sampled & enjoyed the feast' and thanks him for remembering her. Hopes all is as well with him as 'this mad world allows': the 'stupidity of it all is most frightfully annoying' and 'one wonders whenever mankind is going to learn the laws of life' which 'the ancients seem to more about than we'.
