Letter from Janet Trevelyan to Elizabeth Trevelyan

Pen Rose, Berkhamsted. - Mary has indeed been 'indulging in mumps for the last 10 days'; Humphry is in quarantine; she herself expects to get them '2 days after the last date the doctors say I could possible do so' in mid-November. Hopes Julian's leg injury is 'quite healed up now'. She is looking after '[her] Play Centres and Italians as usual' despite 'a certain lamentable aversion for Mussoliny [sic] that occasionally invades one's breast', though this is overcome when she sees the Italians as they are 'always so charming'. Ran five 'organised play-grounds' in London schools during the summer holidays, and the L[ondon] C[ounty] C[ouncil] wants them to do more next year; 'astonishing & pathetic' how little amusement is required to attract the children and 'how easily they can be kept good'. Hopes they will recognise each other when they meet again, she is 'getting very old and stout!'.
