Scope and Content

Faded black and white photograph of a view down a path with trees either side, with hills in the distance to the left. [Taken during a holiday in France]. The white edge has been coloured in with pink and blue crayon to create a border. Pasted onto a page in the notebook. The photograph appears to illustrate the final verse of the play. The text ends '... here is / a little souvenir of a jolly / time, that began by accident and ended by necessity; & / that's the way the best times happen'.
