Dear Menna:

In haste- because of the Festival.
I have just forwarded your inscribed
copy of STRIKE FOR A KINGDOM to Wales.
An inscribed first edition of a first
book by you Is very valuable and I am
asking for its return. Does this seem
mean? I heard William Plomer lecture
yesterday. Drippy anecdotage. Saw
a Queen’s production of a Scandinavian
dramatist called Holberg - like a rugby
scrum. I will give you all my news
soon

Blessings

(John Boyd)
