Discusses Bunny Garnett's autobiography 'The golden echo', the first volume of which is about to be published, which she fears may expose Bell and Grant to public scrutiny; the inclusion of paintings by Bell and Grant in the exhibition 'British painters in France', Royal West of England Academy, Bristol; and exhibitions by Simon Bussy, Derek Hill and Mary Potter at Leicester Galleries. Also mentions Clive Bell, Reginald Blackmore, Bourlet's, Dickey (?E.M.O'R.
