Cambridge

Dear VW

All England is rejoicing over your birthday and you may be sure I do too. We have both achieved very much what we were respectively dreaming of at Seatoller in 1895. (Maurice’s picture of the party is on my mantlepiece1). We have had fortunate lives in a very unfortunate age. We neither of us can move about much now, but if ever you find yourself in Cambridge do look me up.
Yours ever

G.M. Trevelyan
