Content Description

She promises that, if she out lives him, his drawings will only be passed to the right people and will be cared for. Although she sympathises with how Todd feels about the Great War, if he had been fit he would have been killed and posterity would have been the poorer. She provides her opinions on Todd's sister and assures him that, should events conspire, they would make excellent co-executors. The question of destroying drawings is very difficult. She doesn't know what to do about the two portraits of her by Connard.
