E. M. Forster to S. R. Masood, 8 March 1912: 'Have just dined with the Morisons -- a very interesting evening, and I had a long talk alone with Miss Wright about her writings. We got on very well; at least I felt we did. She showed me that dream poem that we had at Tesserete. It is altered [...] and I think very good indeed.'
