Scope and content

8, Grosvenor Crescent, S.W. - Glad to hear Bessie's 'gloomy journey' [back to the Netherlands] was not too uncomfortable; Robert returned 'looking rather disconsolate' and she has not seen him since; fears he will be rather lonely, with the 'nine [Muses]' not making up to him for the 'one' being absent. Good that he has a poem in today's "Speaker". Very glad Bessie enjoyed her time in England; a shame about the weather, but the 'great thing' is to have found that they all like each other. Sir George was sorry when she left: a compliment as he is 'fussed by most people staying in the house'; he cold is now gone. Bessie had better not send the money for the bill until she gets Forsyth's account; encloses bills already paid. Spent yesterday with [her sister] Annie and Miss Wicksteed at Tunbridge Wells; is going for a walk at Kew Gardens today. Lady Reay called to see Bessie on Wednesday and was very sorry to miss her; she greatly admires Professor [Ambrosius] Hubrecht. Sorry to hear Bessie's aunt is slow to recover.
