This chapter presents the text of James Ross Moore's report about George Gershwin's second voyage to England in July 1924. It states that Gershwin started working on his new musical Primrose, set to go into rehearsal only two weeks after his arrival. He had seven songs with his brother Ira's lyrics and he completed his collaboration with Desmond Carter. The musical was so successful that Gershwin and his family took home a truckload of gifts when they left shortly after the musical's September premiere.
