Scope and content

Addressed to Trevelyan c/o Prince Antoine Bibesco, Hotel Meurice, Rue de Rivoli, Paris. - Has not got Trevelyan's address, so hopes Prince Antoine will forward this card. Thanks Trevelyan for the postcard; very kind of him to have ordered her book ["A Pier and a Band"], though she is 'sure it is most unsuitable to read in Paris'. Asks him to tell Francis Birrell, with her love, that 'the great Lytton Strachey' liked her book so her 'price went up in Bloomsbury where the poison of asps lies under tongues'. Asks how Trevelyan is enjoying his work. Postcards always give her 'complete brainstoppage'. Desmond sends his love. Hopes she 'may find [Trevelyan] in the bathroom one day when peace has broken out'.
