Scope and content

Welcombe, Stratford on Avon. - Glad to hear of Robert's return to 'his Penates [home]'; his friend [George Hanley] Hallam cannot go back to his; encloses Hallam's account of his Italian visit, which Robert may know; does not think himself that Horace had any villa near Tibur other than at Licenza, and expects that the name comes from the 'same funny awakening of classical interest' which gave rise to the naming of the 'Tower of Nero', 'Grotto of Egeria' and so on. Is reading [Henry James's] "The Aspern Papers" to Aunt Annie [Philips], which is 'a poem in prose' and gives him 'a horror of this body-snatching gossip'.
