Scope and content

Postmarked Oban. Tovey, crossing out the 'Northlands' address printed on the card, writes 'Among strong-winged foam-wanderers all over the place. - Quotes some lines in Act I [of "The Bride of Dionysus"] which he wishes to cut, explaining his reasons. Will be at the Speyers from about the 5th to the 8th; would be very good if the Trevelyans could host him around the 9th. Explains what he wants Minos's new line to convey. Prefers Trevelyan's original, longer, version of Minos's prayer, as it is easier to set.
