1p., 4to. Good, on lightly aged and creased paper. The recipient is tentatively identified as Nathan in pencil, and considering the reference to Africa his identity cannot be doubted. The book referred to is named in another hand as 'End of a chapter by Shane Leslie'. Her niece Dorothy gave her Leslie's book to read and then return to the recipient. 'I think it extraordinarily interesting, and do not feel at all so "superior" over it as Dorothy does! The early part has the most wonderful memories in it, and there is a vein of very just criticism throughout.' She would like to see him, 'but the whole week is taken up by the Historical Association', of which she is president, and it will be 'a very exacting one'. She concludes: 'I wanted to say at our last African meeting that you have had a very marked effect on it. The whole tone is changing, and there is far more interest being shown by itss Council. I congratulate and [sic] ourselves.'
