Scope and content

8, Grosvenor Crescent. - Glad that Robert agrees Elizabeth is getting stronger; glad that Robert approves of Arnold Bennett's play ["Milestones"] and is curious to see himself what 'so very remarkable a writer' makes of the drama. Spent some time yesterday writing letters to replace those which have probably gone down with the Titanic; hopes the disaster will 'put a stop to the idle, vulgar, foolish luxury of travel'; a ship should be 'well-found, neat, and scrupulously clean' but he suppose 'vulgar people' travel, by sea as they do on land, 'to get a sort of luxury which they cannot afford at home'; they have spoiled hotels and ship life.
