Pippa [Philippa Strachey] to [Jane Strachey]

Scope and Content

Have had a wonderful week with perfect weather except the day they spend in Padua. Departing on the Sunday and will accompany Dorothy (married to Simon Bussy, the French painter) to Beaulieu and then return home in a few days. Simon's friend Martel here for a week 'the most curious person I have yet come across---his utterances are so remarkable that I did nothing but hang on his lips all the time'. Sent Oct 1903 from Venice.
