Chère demoiselle

I have just written you a line to Scripps; whether you get it or not, I should like to have a letter waiting for you at West Rindge. IWare, Mary Lee;b1 understand from Penelope that Miss Ware is already there; so I trust you will get this directly you reach the East.

INoyes, Penelope Barker;c6 asked Penelope to lunch to-day, not knowing whether she would leave her father alone for that length of time or not; but I think she was glad to get away. I was very glad of the opportunity, for it was the first time I have seen her alone for ever so long. And it is difficult to have any personal or even very intelligent conversation when Pa Noyes is present. We had a very pleasant talk.

IPerkinses, the;e4 sawWilburs, the;a3Wilbur, Earl MorseWilburs, the your family at dinner at the Wilburs1 on Tuesday – they are staying at a Bloomsbury hotel – and they came to tea with me at the Berkeley on Wednesday. I do hope they find a house, but on second thoughts I believe that good lodgings would do better. It is easier to find good country lodgings than to find a good servant; and I don’t want you to have the burden of housekeeping. I do hope that you will keep very quiet for the first month or two in England, resting in the country in good air. With all your reserve, your letters have shown that you are in really bad health: as one must put 50% onto anything you say about it. However, if you have got to West Rindge and are reading this letter, the worst is over; but it is very far from over as I write.

IRock, Thereception;d4 don’t know whether The Rock is poetry or not, or whether it shows any dramatic ability or not; but I do feel that it has made its impression on that part of the general public capable of being impressed in that way. I begin to be in a dangerous position of being a Great Poet for numbers of obscure people whose opinion is of little value. YesterdaySt. John's Church, Waterloo Road;a1 IBaylis, Lilian;a2 had to propose a toast at a lunch in honour of St. John’s, Waterloo Road (the Old Vic parish church – Lillian Baylis was there of course) and was overwhelmed with compliments by such people:2 several curates have told me that the play has inspired them with new hope. And perhaps it is better for the moment to have written something which has moved ordinary people in the right way, than to have made great poetry or drama. As for the drama, I must just plug away and try to learn my job. MetHardwicke, Sir Cedricmeets TSE;a2 Sir Cedric Hardwicke for the first time; he was the chairman; I think, one of our best actors. AlsoParsons, Rt Revd Richard, Bishop of Southwark;a1 the Bishop of Southwark,3 who agreed with me about politics and economics. DinedNew Britain Movement;a1 last night with a group of the New Britain reformers: estimable but dreary. TeaHuxley, Aldousinvigorating company;a9 to-day with Aldous, over for a few days, always refreshing. TomorrowRock, Thetwo connected supper-parties;d5, I and the other principals are invited to supper at 5.45 (what an hour to sup, and in evening dress too) by the ten London University undergraduates in the cast in the bar of the Wells theatre; and another supper party afterwards given by Miss Stella Mary Pearce (whose costumes, I must say, are really very fine). SundayUnderhill, Evelyn;b1 to tea with Evelyn Underhill andHayward, John;b1 supper with John Hayward, andMorleys, theTSE's June 1934 fortnight with;c5 on Monday to Lingfield for my rest. MustMorley, Donaldmodel yacht sought for;a3 buy model yacht for Donald to sail on the pond.

MarianEliot, Marion Cushing (TSE's sister)1934 summer in England with Dodo;c5;a3 andSmith, Theodora ('Dodo') Eliot (TSE's niece)and Marion's 1934 visit to England;b1;a3 Dodo sail on the 1st July. I wish you could get here in time to come to the Russian Ballet – perhaps you will, and then you must come. IfScotlandBallachulish;b1;a1 it hadn’t been for having to attend the last night of The Rock I might have been able to go to a party some of the lads of the Scottish Nationalists are giving at Ballachuilish [sc. Ballachulish], which would have been pleasant. HoweverScotlandTSE hopes to visit again;a3, I may run up to the Highlands and see them in September. ButOld Possum’s Book of Practical CatsTSE despairs of finishing;a8 when ever will I get time to finish MrOld Possum’s Book of Practical Catsprovisionally Mr Eliot's Book of Pollicle Dogs and Jellicle Cats and Other Birds & Beasts;a9. Eliot’s Book of Pollicle Dogs and Jellicle Cats and Other Birds & Beasts?4 EzraPound, Ezraneeds pacification;b5 is rampaging about just as ever, and I keep him quiet with picture post cards of the Royal Family. TheCambridge, Major-General Alexander, 1st Earl of Athloneintrigued by The Rock;a1 Earl of Athlone’s secretary says the Earl finds the Rock very Interesting;5 theBeatrice, Princess of the United Kingdompromises to read The Rock;a1 Lady in Waiting says Princess Beatrice6 will read it with Interest. SpentTandy, Geoffreyplaying on slot-machine with TSE;a3 last weekend with GeoffreyTandy, Geoffreydescribed for EH;a4 Tandy (our greatest authority on submarine botany) in his small house at Hampton Court. He has two nice children, who took to me; children who take to one always seem nice. We gambled at an American slot machine in the Red Lion on Saturday night: Tandy won a propelling pencil, I got only a lot of nasty peppermints. But the beer was sound. Tandys are evidently very poor. HeTandy, James Napperancestor of Geoffrey Tandy;a1 is a descendant of Napper Tandy of the Wearing of the Green;7 but I am glad to say not a bit Irish. TookJaquin, Noelcompares TSE's palm to Bernard Shaw's;a1 an impression of my palm to send to Jaquin the great palmistry expert.8 SaidShaw, George Bernardchirologist compares TSE to;a4 my hand remarkably like Bernard Shaw’s, which is equivocal like all oracles. I wonder if Anybody writes such wandering letters as I can and do.

OAmericaCalifornia;d3TSE dreads its effect on EH;a8 it is hard waiting for you to get out of California.


P.S. My Pen is being repaired.
