Summary

Bantock continued to tour during 1895, arriving back in Britain on 5 December. The year was significant in terms of publications of his colleagues’ literary works, including Newman's book Gluck and the Opera (the first extended study of Gluck in the English language), and Wallace's ‘poetical drama’ The Divine Surrender. It also marked the beginning of Newman's contribution to the Fortnightly Review, with an article on Gustave Flaubert.

9 GRANVILLE BANTOCK TO WILLIAM WALLACE

THE NEW QUARTERLY MUSICAL REVIEW.

ALL COMMUNICATIONS TO BE ADDRESSED TO

THE EDITOR,

CARE OF MESSRS. ROBERT COCKS & CO.,

6, NEW BURLINGTON STREET, W.

Dec 21st 1895

My dear Wallace

I have noticed with inward gusto the ecclesiastical tone which now pervades your mind. May it be owing to a feeling of remorse, that you should have so malignantly impugned my nature the other evening. Wert thou condemned to Purgatory for this offence, thou shouldst buy no indulgence for thy grievous sin. Natheless, in the spirit of a Christian martyr I forgive thee for thy rampant blating, [sic] which more resembled the impetuosity of an untamed Saurean, than the mild benevolence of a Scotch pastor. I have as yet received no reply from either Maitland or Webbe, [sic] but have no fear of their wrath. Much as I should like to call on you in your papal dwelling, I fear that I should be committing a sacrilege, were I to cross your revered threshold. Anyhow it would be impossible for me to come over Sunday morning as I have to go up to my co-author in our “Round the world” book, which I rejoice to say has found a ready and willing publisher. Francis owes me about thirty pounds or a little less. I saw him the other day, and have given him until after Xmas to pay it, as he seemed in a bit of a hole. I will then send you on your account. But when are you going to call for your ring, or do you despise the humble gift I offer you in friendship from my heart? Odds bodikins! A murrain on thee for an apostate knave.7 If thou wouldst save thy soul, call round on me soon.
