Scope and content

10 Prinsegracht, The Hague. - Accepts that the blame 'implied' in his father's letter [12/31] was 'well-deserved': he should have consulted his parents before asking anyone to marry him; it was no excuse that he was unsure of the answer he would receive to his proposal [to Elizabeth van der Hoeven]. Thinks the proposed allowance is generous, also that Mr Hubrecht agrees, but he is writing to Sir George himself to 'make the situation simpler clearer'; he said much the same about Robert's not speaking to his parents first as Sir George had.
