Description

Fragment of letter from Vanessa Bell, Charleston, East Sussex, to Duncan Grant. She discusses Virginia Woolf's request to Grant and Bell for woodcuts for a volume to be published by the Hogarth Press (this would become 'Original woodcuts by various artists' [1918], published by Omega). She also discusses the poor health of her brother Adrian, who has been or is due to appear before a military tribunal, and mentions a letter from Sydney Saxon-Turner asking Bell to arrange a rendez-vous with his mistress Barbara Hiles at Charleston. Also mentions her servant Jessie, Roger Fry, John Tresidder Sheppard, Karin Stephen, and Leonard Woolf.
