Description

Letter from Vanessa Bell, 46 Gordon Square, Bloomsbury, London, to Duncan Grant, arranging to meet him for a party at Gustave's the following night with Adrian and Karin Stephen and Leonard and Virginia Woolf. Mabel Selwood has agreed to be a governess at Charleston, and Bell describes a difficult bicycle trip carrying paintings in the wind for an unidentified exhibition that includes works by Roger Fry, Raoul Kristian and Grant, but is otherwise 'monotonous'. The letter is torn and worn and difficult to read in places.
