Oliver [Strachey] to Pippa [Philippa Strachey]

Scope and Content

Says he has written to his mother (about his engagement to Ray daughter of B.F.C. Costelloe). 'I am aware that there may be an outcry in some circles against my living on Ray's money, but propose to disregard it if such nonsense appears' The alternative would be Ray's going to India with him and that she would not do. Sent from Fernhurst, Haslemere.
