[Marietta] Pallis to Philippa Strachey

Scope and Content

Pallis writing from [Long Gores?] Hickling. Thanks her for the kind words she has spoken about Melita. 'She must not be lost. Glad to know what has happened to Mrs Pankhurst (see letter of 1 Jul). Major Buxton (the local big land owner) 'is often silly - he likes to instruct, a characteristic I dislike and he knows very well that I know something about the marsh soils'. Expresses herself strongly about the farming community; 'money always comes first and people second'.
