Scope and content

Greenway, Yaverland, Sandown, Isle of Wight. - Thanks for the 'charming gift' [the collected "From the Shiffolds" published by the Hogarth Press?]: as Bob says, he already knows most of the poems, but re-read them with 'renewed delight' and now feels 'even more grateful' to Bob for the pleasure they give. Glad that his own "Coldknuckles" appeals to Bob: no other book of his has brought 'such gratifying letters' from his 'poet-friends - yet, according to yesterday's TLS, it is just damnable rubbish!'
