Scope and content

Manuscript letter in which Curzon thanks Hubert for his letter and regrets not being able to meet up properly last October. However, he has been updated on Hubert's success. He relays that Hubert's success means a lot to Hilda Collens, both personally and for the Northern School of Music, especially given her ill health. He wishes to hear about his concerts and is impressed with his lecture series. He explains that he is currently on his sixth tour of the USA. He hopes to take a sabbatical after next season as he cannot imagine staying in America permanently. Working in America, he says, is akin to "carrying a load of burning coals - one can't drop it... and one can't hold it."
