Content DescriptionComments on Margaret's recent move to Brighton, and her own continued stay in Ukiah; gives an account of her life after she left England, including leaving her husband Laurence [Hilton], the Taos 'Art' group [at Pond Farm], and her early jobs in America; mentions the point when local people began to recognise her association with D.H. Lawrence when she contributed to Harry T. Moore's book [-t-The Intelligent Heart-tc-, 1955] and helped Angelo Ravagli to date Frieda [Lawrence]'s papers after her death [in 1950].

Tells of her bad experience with the American press, when the San Francisco representative of the -t-New York Times-tc- wrote an inaccurate account of her life and association with D.H. Lawrence [Hil 3/4/2, 'Memories of D.H. Lawrence Helped Her Shape the Beginnings of a New Life']; mentions that the journalist wrote to her apologising for the published article and sent a copy of the first rough draft [Hil 3/4/1] to prove that her intentions had been good.
