Scope and content

Northlands, Englefield Green. - Donald [Tovey] has gone to visit the Speyers, tired and 'in a rather anxious state of irritation with the Classical Concert Societry again'; Willy Speyer [perhaps an error for Strecker?] spent the afternoon with them and thinks he is coming to the Trevelyans on the 3rd. Donald is giving the first lecture in a series on German music at Oxford on August 4th; very disappointed not to be going to hear him as planned; asks Bessie to get Donald to read it out as it must not exceed fifty-five minutes and to check about providing a piano. Hopes it will be as good as he can make it, as his 'chances of a future Professorship depend on such things'.
