Scope and content

Greenway, Yaverland, Sandown, Isle of Wight. - Thanks Bob for his 'charming gift' [this year's "From the Shiffolds"]; particularly good for him to have Bob's 'admirable versions' of [classical] poems which in Wilfrid's 'ignorance' he would otherwise be 'unable to enjoy'. Cannot currently send anything in return, as his two volumes 'which should have been out months ago' are still held up by the printers and binders. Best wishes for 'as happy a Christmas as is possible in such a world'.
