Abstract:

Asks for advice on a comedy he is planning to write. Complains of the ghastly conventionalisement of modern comedies such as Browning's Colombe's Birthday. Elizabethan comedies were better because they showed man as a social being in fixed social relations rather than as individuals or simply members of a family (though he would like to see a family comedy written about the Brother's Widow Marriage Bill.) Elaborates on the plot he has envisioned involving various community members in 'The Parish.' Asks him to thank Mr. Chadwick for the donation of blue books. The birth of another daughter has left him idle as a butterfly.
