Letter from Caroline Trevelyan to Elizabeth Trevelyan

Welcombe, Stratford on Avon. - Glad to hear Julian is crawling now; will send a parcel for his birthday soon. Unlucky that Miss [Margaret?] V[aughan] Williams has caught measles; it can be bad in adults. Miss Martin came to Welcombe yesterday; they expect the Runcimans, Janet, and George on Saturday; think Charlie is also coming since he stayed at home with a cold last week. Thinks Elizabeth will like Mrs Walter Rea; glad she has 'such nice neighbours'. She and Sir George move to London on 22 Feb; she will go to the concert on the way from the station, and asks whether Elizabeth will be there. Asks how she liked 'the Spaniard' [Benvingut Socias i Mercadé, see 46/174]. Nice that Julian listens to music.

Letter from Sir George Trevelyan to Elizabeth Trevelyan

Wallington, Cambo, Morpeth. - Thanks Mrs Walter Rea for thinking of the puzzle, and Elizabeth for sending it; it is the most difficult he has ever done and he has 'had to take a holiday even to set it going'; will let her know how he gets on. This morning in the portico, saw a little girl 'in a sort of ecstasy of happiness' singing and talking to a kitten; Caroline says it must have been May Enticknap; glad they [the Enticknaps] are here and 'so agreeably lodged'. They are looking forward to Elizabeth and Robert's visit, and eager to see Julian. Is finding it 'a very attractive way of doing one's politics' to read the letters in the "Times" at Wallington; supposes everything will be over by Friday; the 'unexpected has played a great part, as it always does in a revolution'.
