He is working on the final parts of his paper, 'Chaucer as a Philologist: The Reeve’s Tale'.Published in Transactions of the Philological Society, 1934[3] At which point he will return to matters on the Clarendon Chaucer, he mentions that he is being helped by David Nichol Smith to finish the notes.

If he can find some time away from children and work, he would like to visit Sisam.
