Artefact

Griff writes to Ida while she's in Italy. Benjamin Britten's Piano Concerto No.1 is on the radio, "Benjy not only composed the thing, but played it. A double fault." A bit of shade there?
Griff's tobacconist whom relations in Milan "shocked me by saying coldly 'it's similar to Manchester.' After an incredulous interval, he said 'there's the cathedral, of course.'" He's sending a quick map to her in lieu of the London city guide.
"Have been to Denton today and Mr. Myer tells me Clyde Twelvetrees and Raymond Meert have been requested to resign from the Hallé-L'pool Phil-BBC engagement. Very sorry if this is true."
