Scope and content

Northlands, Englefield Green, Surrey. - Sent on Trevelyan's letter to Donald [Tovey] in Budapest, where he went to play a recital with [Pablo] Casals which was so successful that he was asked to stay and play in an orchestral concert on 2nd March; thinks he has been paid well, and he is seeing people and shedding 'some of the parochial worries of London'. It is 'too bad of the Pecksniffian creatures' to criticise Donald for ingratitude to 'that poor old weathercock Mr Speyer'; she feels it is Speyer who shows 'inhumanity' to Donald. Hopes that Bessie is better and would have visited if that had been allowed. Asks if Trevelyan will come to see Donald if he is back next week, The new house is getting on; it 'rather terrifies' her sometimes, but it will be comfortable and pleasant for them all.
