Letter from Vanessa Bell, Charleston, Firle, East Sussex, to Duncan Grant. She dreads the imminent arrival of John Maynard Keynes and Lydia Lopokova at their neighbouring farmhouse, Tidwell, and discusses Stevens' work in the garden. She is painting a portrait of Helen Anrep; advises Grant not to make radical changes to a painting - once a screen - before he has talked to Roger Fry; and mentions a row involving Bicknell, Clive Bell and Dorothy Todd over their upcoming exhibition. Also mentions the maid Alice Mary, Angelica, Julian and Quentin Bell, Angus Davidson, Louie Dunnet, Matthew Smith, and Mrs Standen.
