Scope and content

Rocca Bella. -Thinks Bessie 'will be quite safe in [Bob's] hands'; congratulates him again, and thanks him for her letter. When she wrote hers [17/142?] she was upset; though she still feels 'just as wretched and indignant at the [Second Boer] war and the Jingos', she regrets giving her 'feelings the full sway so'. Bob's letter was 'most good and kind', giving her the 'best proof that any fears for Bessie were vain'. Hopes they will both be very happy; has no fears he will 'pull B. away from her people' and hopes he will 'continue to feel ever more at home with us' and that Bessie will be 'a loving daughter' to his parents. She never knew her father, and knew her mother only a little, so it will be 'sweet to her to get another father and mother' through Bob. Wishes she were in the Hague to do a portrait of Bessie now; expects her expression is just what she would like to paint. Hopes she did not 'make mischief' by writing to Mien [Bessie's sister]: could not make out from Bob's telegram that the engagement should be kept quiet for a few days. Only told Miss [Emma?] Dahlerup here.
