Scope and content

Wallington, Cambo, Northumberland. - [Sir George's] elbow is 'healing at last'; he went out shooting with C[harles] and G[eorge] yesterday; they are sending two grouse and a blackcock. They are alone again; Charles has gone shooting with friends. Had a 'lively time with the Cropper girls'. Hopes Elizabeth is playing the violin. Is amused to think of her returning their neighbours' calls; Mrs [Mary] Kay at Fredley would also be friendly if she knew them, as would the Browns at Leith Hill [Alexander Hargreaves Brown and his wife?]. Thinks Elizabeth has acted 'very wisely about the furniture'; asks if anything more is wanted for the house. Sorry there is not better news of her aunt and [cousin] Marie; the air in the Engadine [valley, Switzerland] is 'wonderful' and she hopes it will help them. Hopes Marie will be well enough to look after her mother when the Grandmonts return to Sicily. She has read [Rostand's] "Les Romanesques" but has been 'much amused with it again'; would like to have seen [Suzanne] Reichenberg in it, whom she thinks has now retired. Arthur Sidgwick has written 'very interestingly about his brother [Henry], who was buried very quietly at Terling'. Sir George 'felt it very much, & it was partly what upset him last week'; sorry Elizabeth never saw him.
