Scope and Content

Letter from RD to his parents, relating to: his apologies for an earlier, selfish, letter; the self-centredness which can arise from living away in digs; Ella [Voysey]'s failure to understand the way in which his work as an artist binds him up; plans for his parents' voyage [to visit RD's brothers in Canada, where they ultimately settled as well]; and his gratitude to them for giving him the strength and faith to carry on.
