Gloucestershire, 1941. unbound. 3 pages (front and back), 4.5 x 7 inches, Cotswold House, Campden, Gloucestershire, England, January 19, 1941. Written to powerful New York attorney Frederic R. Coudert, in part: "...Our house in London was bombed in September, and though not wrecked, is uninhabitable, nor could it be of any use in London now, which is here in Ellensburg. Otherwise we manage to get on pretty well. People, as no doubt you know, in living at Beaconsfield, which though so near to London has been a comparatively safe area...At the age of 81, I stand and wait, or rather I sit and wait, is all one can do in the way of National Service." One vertical fold but still in fine condition. British classical scholar and professor of poetry at Oxford.
