Scope and content

Wallington, Cambo, Morpeth. - Not quite well enough to answer Robert's letter properly; envies him his first read of [Aristophanes's] "Lysistrata": 'whatever may be said about it, the plot has a meaning in it'. Is reading about the siege of Syracuse by Marcellus [in Livy]; taken as part of the Second Punic War, it has 'the same sort of interest as Admiral Studdy's victory [sic: Admiral Doveton Sturdee had just defeated a German squadron at the Falkland Islands]' or the capture of the Chesapeake by the Shannon; 'these events depend on their surroundings'.
