Notes, topics or text 

Blake announces the birth of his daughter, Christina, 1948/05/20 and the awfulness of the hospital.

Blake commiserates over feeling isolated. Most of his old friends are Communists and he has been labelled a fascist by them. He was interested to read her criticism of Socialism in England.

Blake asks if Kate is in the US, he would love to see her, and he misses all of them. He was rereading Pride and Prejudice and was thinking how much fun it would be to read it aloud with Peter, "especially Collins, of course".
