Scope and content

Welcombe, Stratford on Avon. - Elizabeth and Julian 'arrived very punctually', and they were glad to see them. Robert knows how much he read Sam Butler; likes his favourite pieces 'more than ever' and had looked forward very much to the appearance of the "Life and Letters", writing to (he thinks) Festing [Jones] long ago about it. Was struck by Bernard Shaw's article in the "Manchester Guardian" [ "Samuel Butler: The New Life", "Manchester Guardian" 1 Nov 1919 p 7] as Shaw had 'always made a speciality of his feeling for Butler'; Shaw said the 'conventional ecstasies of the Reviewers' were a scandal to British reviewing'. Someone has send him the article originally enclosed with this letter; agrees with Maurice Hewlett that 'Miss Savage's letters vouch the very lowest moral point' he can remember. George and his family leave tomorrow.
