Scope and content

Handed in at Edinburgh L. - [George] Campbell agrees to principals from outside the cast [of the Edinburgh Opera Company, for "The Bride of Dionysus"] 'if and when' locals prove it sufficient [sic: insufficient?]. Is also 'crazy' for something other than stock scenes and characters. Asks Trevelyan to 'close with him'; thinks all well.

      Pencil annotations on the back of the telegram seem to be a draft reply by Trevelyan to a request for contributions to an un-named social club, and to have nothing to do with the telegram.
