Abstract:
Correspondence of C. A. Dawson Scott and her daughter Marjorie Watts. The bulk of the letters from Dawson Scott to her daughter date from 1920 to 1921. The lengthy letters, written in diary form, contain details of Dawson Scott's divorce, her writing, the Tomorrow Club, the founding of the P.E.N Club, and news and discussion of her literary associates. Later letters to her sister Nellie (Ellen Maude Dawson) include mention of the Survival League. There are letters to Dawson Scott from Karel Capek, E. M. Delafield, Sheila Kaye-Smith, Charlotte Mew, May Sinclair, and Rebecca West. Manuscript copies of two poems, "The Forest Road" and "The Pedlar" by Charlotte Mew, presumably were enclosed with letters from Mew. Letters to Marjorie Watts, many of them concerning her 1971 book about her mother and the early years of PEN, are written by E. M. Delafield, Storm Jameson, Francis King, Robert Neumann, and Rebecca West.
