"It has been peaceful here, Bob reading me his poems as usual—they are of no value but I don't tell him so, as I don't think he could do anything better. We went a long walk with a bathe in the middle this afternoon—it was very beautiful. But Bob was a bit of a bore. Their little boy is called Julian, which causes confusion in my mind. He is a nice child, I always rather enjoy people who have children—if possible—nice children are so extraordinarily lovable. Bob and Bessy are happy together, though Bob would not make any woman happy who wasn't a saint—he is so very selfish and oblivious of others. All the same I have a great affection for him. He has an odd placid existence with his books—no temptations or storms or upsets—only the half-faced knowledge that his is no good. He is oddly literary—he never approaches any feeling directly, but always through what the poets have said about it. I half despise his life, yet I find it restful, and I have often enjoyed the holiday from real things. At present I don't need that, so my visit is less enjoyable than some previous ones."
