"Herewith you receive the rest of Henley’s hospital work. He was much pleased by what you said of him, and asked me to forward these to you for your opinion; the pencil marks are principally Payne’s. One poem at least, the “Spring Sorrow”, which seems to me the most beautiful, I hope you will communicate to Madame. I thank God for this [italics]petit bout de consolation[end italics], that by Henley’s own account, this one more lovely thing in the world is not altogether without some trace of my influence: let me say that I have been something sympathetic which the mother found and contemplated while she yet carried it in her womb. This, in my profound discouragement, is a great thing for me; if I cannot do good work myself, at least, it seems, I can help others better inspired; I am at least a skilful accoucheur."

Notes
On p.150, the Editors’ Note 1 reads: “The MS of the second series of Henley’s Hospital Poems was among Colvin’s papers at the time of his death [which took place in 1927]. According to Anderson, 7 May 1928 (214),” [this reference does not seem to tally with the dates of the “Anderson I-III” item in the Short Titles part of the Sources list of the Booth-Mehew edition of the Correspondence] “ it contains eighteen poems, only nine of which have been published. ‘Spring Sorrow’ eventually became ‘pastoral’(No. XXII in the ‘In Hospital’ section of ""A Book of Verses"", 1888.”
