My dear Derek,

Thanks for yrs of last Friday.

I appreciate yr comments on the
latest Fox. It was written as a result of
something i read and then garnished x own observations. "Over-stated gardens"
means that the gardens of the Moghuls
were,by English standards,over-elaborate
and extravagant in design. Will also
bear in mind Peggie's comment.

Good to hear of your regal Greek
repast in Fitzrovia. Stuffed VINE leaves,
Turkish coffee and brandy are just the
kind of food and drink that appeal x to
Capt. Fox.

I have the impression that these days
you are living the High Life (Cafe Loyal
next) whereas I live a life of near-
monastic austerity. W'ell,sort of.

I wrote very nicely to Valerie. Ho
reply. So something is going wrong some-
where. Editor of BBN enclosed note with
the last parcel to say she was having
Fox reviewed and that the had found the
poems "very interesting."

Love to you both - Robert

F.Vine continues to give me trouble>/sup>
