He is writing to inform Clark that he is 'about to become a schoolmaster - temporarily only', and is 'giving the English Literature Course to Scottish Schools this session'. He is 'speaking on "Poetry of To-Day and Yesterday", or, in more precise terms, on Poetry since the death of Tennyson'. He gives the times of his talk, and hopes Clark will 'tune in'.
