Scope and content

Farringford, Freshwater, I[sle of] W[ight]. - Does not know Trevelyan's current address, but so is sending this via Cole. Wants to ask Trevelyan about a bookcase he 'left as a fixture at Roundhurst Farm', which according to Cole Trevelyan discovered Mr Blaydes had taken away and insisted upon his returning it. Regrets the day Blaydes ever became the Tennysons' tenant: they have had 'no end of bother with him & lawyers' and he has taken the bookcase away again. Asks Trevelyan to let her know as soon as possible whether he 'sanctioned Mr Blaydes to take it'. They have been spending a month at Aldworth; was very 'refreshing to see neither little Roundhurst nor any of its neighbourhood altered'. Hears from the Enticknaps that Trevelyan is building himself a house and has found a wife - '"and she is a nice lady"'. Hallam [her husband] sends remembrances.
