Dear Dove,

I can only begin a letter to you to-day; I shall continue it tomorrow, and then it must be sent off whether it is finished or not, because there is always supposed to be a mail out on Tuesday afternoons. I had hoped for a clear morning this day (Monday) but yesterday afternoon – just as I was bustling off to deliver'Dryden the Critic, Defender of Sanity';a2 my third and last broadcast talk on Dryden – JamesJoyce, Jamesappears suddenly in London;a1 Joyce1 rang up and announced his sudden presence in London – so this morning I trotted off early to see him at the Belgravia Hotel – there are few people for whom I would do as much – butJoyce, Jamesadmired and esteemed by TSE;a2 I have always liked Joyce and furthermore I consider him so much more important a person than myself, whose shoelaces (qua writer of English) I am unworthy to untie etc. I had to spend the morning with him, and only arrived here at 12:15, havingDawson, Christopher;a1 a lunch engagement with Christopher Dawson2 and DouglasJerrold, Douglas;a2 Jerrold at 1:15. IEnglandthe English weather;c3cursed by Joyce;a1 found Joyce able to see much better than a year ago, and able to walk about without guidance and to write legibly, which is a great deal for him, but cursing the wet English weather, and staying as near to Victoria Station as possible so as to get back quickly to France if the weather doesn’t improve. Otherwise he intends to stay in London for a month or so until his son finds him a new flat in Paris.

But I shall mention Joyce again from time to time. Your dear letter of the 17th arrived this morning, before I have answered the other – how very good you are to me, I hope to make you realise all the joy and delight and strengthening each letter brings. I am relieved to have heard from you after receiving my next letter to the deplorable one. So now I will wish my Bird good-night, though it is just lunch time (and breakfast time for her – I hope doves breakfast well), and recommence tomorrow.

April 29th WEDNESDAY. Now I can go on for a bit! Nothing much has happened meanwhile, except that theJoyce, Jamestakes flat in Kensington;a3 Joyces have taken a flat in Kensington for a year, and I am trying to find out for him about a ‘biography’ of him which is announced, and about which he was not consulted and is therefore incensed;3 and FrankMorley, Frank Vigorreturns from New York;a3 Morley has returned from New York, of which I am gIad, and theFabers, the;a3 Fabers return from Wales tomorrow (No, TomFaber, Thomas Erle ('Tom', TSE's godson)not named for TSE;a14 was not named for me, but I am his god-father nevertheless – ILear, EdwardThe Book of Nonsense;a8 have just got him Lear’s Nonsense Book, not the Limericks but the songs).5

Although the Dryden is done with, thankfully, I'Pensées of Pascal, The'undertaken in ignorance;a1 am still rushed, with an essay on Pascal to be written by next Monday if possible as Introduction to an Everyman Library edition of the Pensées; I know almost nothing about the subject, but took it on in order to learn, and have become quite absorbed in that extraordinary character; I hope it will be a good essay.6 (Although I have written no verse, I have been told that my prose in the last six months is better writing than any before, which is encouraging – and an unconscious compliment to You).

I have not yet got my ‘Hayfever’ text, but hope to have it before the performance. Iflowers and florasweet peas;c9and EH's performance in Hay Fever;a1 had a mad idea of cabling flowers – but did not know where to – and then I reflected that it might be more an annoyance or embarrassment than a pleasure to have an anonymous bunch of sweet peas appear – so abandoned the project, reluctantly. I hope you do not overtire yourself, though I am glad you should get away at times; I have not heard of the Landons before, – I am sorry about scents, but imagined that they would be prohibitively expensive in America; perhaps some day I may see you in Paris and see what Caron or Guerlain can do in that way – IFranceParis;b7EH pictured in;a2 should love to see you lunching at Foyot or Voisin or even at the Nymphes du Luxembourg looking over the Gardens or at Latesier’s in the Avenue Victor-Hugo or the Taverne Perigourdine with a paté and a petit vin mousseux de Saumur – I like to chatter sometimes and that is my mood this morning – I shall write more seriously on Friday, on which day, I hope you will be having your picture done as I am very impatient – I should like to have two poses, please, if possible. It makes me happy to think of mine being dignified with a leather frame in your room upstairs. ICorpus Christi College, Cambridge;a2 may go to Corpus (Cambridge) for a weekend at the end of May – otherwise – but that is for Friday. ThereLewis, WyndhamEH promised copy of portrait by;a1 is a reproduction of a drawing of me by Wyndham Lewis7 several years ago – theSchiff, Sydney (Stephen Hudson)owns Wyndham Lewis's drawing of TSE;a1 original in the possession of Sydney Schiff Esqre.8 – which I am trying to find for you.9 Your Easter Card is on my mantel here, amongStead, William Forcehis photograph on TSE's mantel;a4 a photograph of W. Force Stead (who wrote the sad letter)[,] oneFaber, Thomas Erle ('Tom', TSE's godson)his photograph on TSE's mantel;a2 of Tom Faber, oneFassett, Irene Pearlher photograph on TSE's mantel;a1 of Irene Fassett (my first and best secretary, now dead)10 andDobrée, Bonamyphotograph of his home on TSE's mantel;a2 one of Bonamy Dobrée’s country house in Norfolk. What a Silly letter this has been: but you must allow me to be trivial at times, as I am sometimes sombre; O my dear, my Turtle,11 my dear –
