Scope and content

Postmarked Almondsbury, Bristol. - Has written 'many letters' to Bob in her imagination, but it is 'so much pleasanter to sit in the garden reading [his] poems' so sends instead a 'belated postcard'. Very kind of him to send her his books, and likes this volume ["Aftermath"] particularly. Is distressed about Bath [recently targeted in a 'Baedeker' raid]; lucky that little 'irreparable damage' to the architecture has been done. Wrote to Riette [Sturge Moore, working there in the mapmaking department of the Admiralty] but has not heard from her. Asks if Bob has any news of Gordon Luce, and whether Luce's children are in England.
