Description

Letter from Vanessa Bell, 46 Gordon Square, Bloomsbury, London, to Duncan Grant, Paris, where he is working on Jacques Copeau's staging of a version of 'Twelfth Night' at his Théâtre du Vieux-Colombier. Bell looks forward to painting pots with him for Omega Workshops, mentions Roger Fry's research trip to the Staffordshire potteries the following day, humorously fantasises about eloping to Tunis with Grant, and admits that low finances will curtail the Bells' travels this year. Also mentions Molly MacCarthy and her Novel Club, Margery Snowden, and Lytton Strachey.
