Scope and content

8, Grosvenor Crescent, S.W. - There is 'fire and spirit' in [William] Everett's poetry, and he is not put off them by the 'lascivior' [lewder] lines; Robert can keep Everett's other letter. A good letter by [Roger] Fry in the November "Burlington"; comments on how well it [the magazine] keeps up. Caroline has given him a detailed account of the Shiffolds; Sir George hopes to see the house in spring or early summer. Glad Elizabeth is interested in his "Interludes [in Verse and Prose]"; it is good to have published his 'old man's book', and to have written it when he was twenty two or twenty three. Hopes his family will stop him writing reminiscences. They are very sad about Herbert Philips [his death]; he was a 'dear good fellow' who had made 'as great a position by mere, unadulterated, goodness' as Sir George ever knew of. Is looking forward to the holiday, as he has been busy for sixteen months; they start on Sunday and go via Paris, Lucerne, and Milan; they have not yet seen inside the Castello [at Milan?]
