Scope and content

Thanks Duff for his letter and the Lucan notes; is surprised his 'little bit of translation', which he did when 'Postgate was trying to make [him] believe that blank verse was the proper medium', has had such a good reception. Thanks for Duff's note on Cicero. Is very glad Duff thinks well of his book [The Roman Republic?]; had some good reviews though a 'great Oxford light' recently 'sneered' at him 'as a hunter after pretty phrases'.
