Scope and content

5 Keats Grove, Hampstead, N.W.3. / Tillies Cottage, Forest Green, Dorking. - Asks how things are at the Shiffolds. She and her husband are coming down tomorrow for the weekend, and for a few weekends after than. Sends 'belated thanks' for the 'lovely Christmas book' ["From the Shiffolds"]; she got ill before she acknowledged it. While recovering last week she asked Robert to find it; he was unable to but found Bob's [translation of] Aeschylus' "Oresteia", so she read that instead. Hopes that the Trevelyans are both well and 'haven't had anything like the bedevilments this winter' that the Lynds have had.
