"first let me say how splendid I think the ""Last Post"" is. (By the way, Duckworth has acknowledged receipt of MSS, so that"s all safe). Mark"s death is a lovely poem. And poor Valentine! But all that is a bit too near the knuckle. Still I"m the only person who is going to feel that, and it doesn"t make it less wonderful art. I"m glad you didn"t have a scene betwen Helen Luther and Valentine. I let Bradley read the MSS before sending it to Duckworth and he is awfully enthusiastic. He thinks it is a wonderfully sustained finish to the whole series. Only he expected a tragic denouement and was taken aback by the capitulation of Sylvia! So was I, rather. But I don"t think you"ve ever in your life done anything better than you"ve done in this book. There is nothing better anywhere in Literature than Marie Leonie, Mark on Women, and the boy, and even Valentine"s agonies even if she [underlined] is [end underlining] so beastly normal! Anyway that is my opinion."
