MacGreevy writes to George after the death of her brother Harold Hyde-Lees, recalling a meeting they had in 1948. Nostalgically, he recalls things that George and her mother Mrs. Tucker said to him some fifty years earlier. Empathizes with George's loneliness, and recalls his own family situation. He recalls Jack Yeats definition of The Beautiful. He closes by writing that he now has leisure time [since his retirement from the National Gallery] and reminds George that he is free any time she wishes to meet.
