Sympathising with Sassoon over 'that experience with the Sunday Express'; on being pleased that Sassoon had 'gone over to the Roman Church'; referring to their meeting at Oundle; mentioning that they had had Alec Guinness to visit that summer: 'a wonderfully nice man', and that he hoped the reappearance of 'Goodbye [to all That]' would not 'bother' Sassoon: 'my admiration & affection displayed there for you came out very strongly when I re-read it'.
