Scope and content

Wildcroft, Danbury, Essex. - Has just been 'dealing with' the "Eumenides" [reference to his music for Trevelyan's translation of Aeschylus' "Oresteia"?] from a proof copy: notes that the translation of the last four lines is missing, and quotes the Greek. Asks Trevelyan if he can send his translation to Goodwin & Tabb [music publishers]; Gibbs will instruct them to insert the missing lines. Notes one of the lines of Trevelyan's translation is difficult in the last verse, where one word is 'repeated 3 times by itself in the music'; supposes however that this does not matter.
