Museum Criticum No 7 on point of publication - more than enough material. Review of PE's Bacchae - may be sent to Giffoerd at the Quarterly, or may be given to Monk. Response to Burgess' charges of plagiarism against B. Writer of review of B's Agamemnon in the last Quarterly identified. Too busy to get to Althorp this winter. Doing less Classics and being more of a cleric. Asks for notes on the Knights, as they are proceeding with Museum Criticum No 8.

Date probable, in view of preceding. Staying at The Hummums rather than at Eastey's. Too busy to visit St Mary Cray, but hopes to see PE in town. Lack of contributions to Museum Criticum - hopes for some notes on the Medea from PE.
