Scope and Contents

Thanks for 'two beautiful books'; 'Truly you do belong to a more gracious age than ours'; visit to Oxford for lunch at Merton College; 'Oxford has a long memory and I detected an inclination to dissociate themselves from Wood... they stressed the fact that Wood was never a fellow of the College and was turned out of the common room and expelled from the University... they seemed mincing and worldly and I scarce saw an honest face.'; visit to Golden Cockeril Press and Robert Gibbings; he will print an essay of Powys's 'in the same magnificent format as his Gospels'
