Scope and content

8, Grosvenor Crescent, S.W. - Very glad to get a 'cheerful letter' from Elizabeth and find 'everything is pleasantly settled' [about the Howards being invited and Sir George attending]; was stupid of her not to say that Bessie should show her letter to her uncle. Hopes the preparations will now go well and Elizabeth will enjoy Robert's visit before the wedding. They are looking forward to their visit to the Hague; not sure when the boys will arrive, since Charles thinks of going to Oberammergau for the Whit Sunday performance and George will not travel with them. Mrs Prestwich will look after Caroline, so she will not bring a maid; asks that she has 'a nice little room' near hers; they also think of bringing a footman who will need a bedroom. If the legal papers are ready in time, would be better if Robert signed them before leaving England. She and Sir George are going to Welcombe for a few days. Postscript saying that Elizabeth will find six pocket handkerchiefs 'of Armenian work' for her trousseau in the parcel.
