Aug 12th 1931 - Laurence Housman.The letter is addressed to "My Dear Mrs Hales", and thanks her for "my good time under your roof". He goes onto describe a lecture that he gave at Bath including a reading from "'Gate of Death", your mother-in-law would not let me read to you, fearing it would be too gruesome.
