Notes, topics or text 

The letter has the initials "HB" on it. It has also been stamped "H.M. Prison".Frank Russell has seen Miss Otter—the 3 books he is sending come from her. The letter continues on 2 Aug. 1918.

This section of the letter is a message from Rinder, document .080001a, record 119665. She conveys messages from C.P. Trevelyan, Lytton Strachey and Constance Malleson who is "delighted about Bergson". Rinder has lunched with Wildon Carr.

Frank then writes two lines in closing; they are followed by a long paragraph in Constance Malleson's handwritten on the Friday, which is 2 August. She had been lunching with Frank and Elizabeth.

She has found a tenant for the flat. Her plans for the autumn are Shropshire (i.e. Boismaison) and then a week or two at the Rinders' cottage in Winchelsea. Miles will probably not require the studio. Captain Gordon will be the treasurer of Miles's new venture (an experimental theatre); she expects to be very busy with it. She has had a "wonderful time in Wales, motoring everywhere, the joy of work and much money! Maurice has fractured his arm but he is still working, the Wales offer came from him."

She has made friends with Olaf Baker. She gives her opinion on a number of things and mentions Siegfried Sassoon, Lady Randolph Churchill and Lady Cunard.
