Letter from J M Barrie to E Lucas

I suppose your wanderings have taken you to Paris by this time ... Michael's recess comes long before Nico's now, but as it's the Long Vacation he will have August and September as well. I was at Oxford yesterday, and it was as lovely as any "Magic casements opening on to foam/Of perilous seas in fairy lands forlorn" which someone said (Wordsworth?) are the loveliest lines in English verse. Yet tho' he likes it all M. says he could conceive nothing more delightful than to wake up and find there was another half at Eton. That last year takes an extraordinary grip of them.
