Notes, topics or text 

The letter is written from their cottage, the Millhangar, which they find "enchanting and most comfortable".

BR is turning his lectures on (German) social democracy into a book and he also wants to work on space. Their trip to America has to be postponed. "Bertie, I know, will not be able to take a holiday or to enjoy anything until it is done. It haunts him now, day and night, and he is longing to be done with social democracy, and free for his dear dull space." BR "is as keen as I am for America, and of course he longs to see the Yellowstone and Alaska, but his mind must be free for it."

[The accession record indicates that this letter may have been meant for Mary Garrett.]
