Abstract:

Indicating that he is writing on paper made in 1802, given to him by Bartholomew - "very difficult to write on"; describing how he wishes to buy a "sand-and-gravel" boat when he retires and float around Lake Maggiore, "stopping at all the little villages," enclosing a photo of such a boat; discussing his recent trip to Switzerland; indicating that they are renting a home in Golder's Green for at least a year and complaining of minimal productivity; discussing progress on Lawrence's Odyssey, of which he now has six volumes in type; discussing plans to go to Kelmscott Manor with Lawrence, who greatly admires and wishes to meet May Morris, and thus [Rogers] tries to "keep up the illusion of being [an admirer] - when in that company"; mentioning that Hornby visited before leaving for Italy and was "loud in his praises of a new Dante in 5 vols" by John Henry Nash; noting a pleasant visit with McKay and his wife.
