Scope and content

Wallington, Cambo, Morpeth. - Writes to greet Robert and Elizabeth on their return home. Interested to hear about their host at Saxifield [?]. Agrees with Robert's appreciation of Baldwin's 'choice of men for such functions'. Approves Julian being 'introduced' to "Emma", "Bleak House", and "Barchester Towers". He himself is reading Gissing's 'two great books': "New Grub Street" and the "Nether World", which are tragic but very readable. Tells Robert to read the article marked with pencil in the ["Times] Literary Supplement", "The War on Science" [Harpur, Caldwell. "The War on Science," Times Literary Supplement" 1 Sept. 1927 p 590] which will make him 'sit up with surprise'.
