Dear Miss Scott

I went to see Ivor1 on Thursday, I was pleased with his appearance after what you told me - very thin of course but I cd not see he looked worse than when I last saw him.
The attendant sats he has suddenly taken to eating meat (roast pork one day!)
I asked him about books & he said something about Benthams Dictionary of literature - do you know what it is?
I hope you are feeling better for your holiday
Yrs sincerely
R Vaughan Williams
