Letter from Vanessa Bell, 46 Gordon Square, Bloomsbury, London, to Duncan Grant, written over two days. On Monday she describes luncheon with the 'chilly' couple of John Maynard Keynes and Lydia Lopokova, and dining with Clive and Quentin Bell, soon joined by Adrian Stephen and Bunny Garnett. They discuss 'The Nation and Athenaeum', soon to be acquired by a group chaired by Keynes. On Tuesday, Angelica's new nurse Louie Dunnet arrives, cook Grace Germany is excited by her new bedroom, and Bell admires Pippa Strachey's screen. Also mentions Sigmund Freud, Tom Ford, Dora Harland, Henry the dog, Mr Stevens, Mrs Uppington, and Virginia Woolf.
