[Totnes], to David Astor by Sean O'Casey( )

Discussing art and offering criticism of an image on a card he sent to O'Casey; asking "Who is the young man standing looking at the dogs? Is that meant to be the Honorable David Astor? If the Honorable, well enough; but if it is meant to be the intelligent, nervous, imaginative you[ng] man I once knew - David Astor - then, what a falling off is there! Jesus, man, youre not going to see the universe in a pack of snarling curs? You are young; you are intelligent; you have, I think, imagination that which, according to Blake, links us close to heaven. Dont waste these tremendous gifts on dogs...But, if you are beginning to take an interest in art, then a bad beginning's no great harm. We all make bad beginnings;" adding that they are in Devon and he will have a "new book out in March. Life story up to twelve years of age. Hope you'll buy it. Hope you'll read it. Hope you'll like it. Called 'I Knock at the Door.'
