'14th March 1929.
I had the ?Open Road? in my pocket, and we [G.M. and a friend, Miss Mundel] read bits together, and talked of ?Wander-thirst?, of Stevenson, of gardens, of tobacco, and (with E.V.L. in our minds) of ?Punch?. I recommended some of the glorious days I have passed in the country beyond St. Cloud with this book for company, and recited Stevenson?s ?Requiem? which Miss M?ndel liked and copied.
The Websters gave me three numbers of ?Punch? for my week-end reading.'
