Scope and content

Wallington, Cambo, Northumberland. - Will be a great pleasure to Annie [Philips] and Sophie [Wicksteed] to have Elizabeth on a visit today. Sir George has had a 'quite beautiful' letter from Robert; they are both very glad to be able to help him and Elizabeth and want to see them 'settled in a nice house'; it is best not to hurry, but she hopes Leith Hill will 'come off'. George and Janet have found a house 'with a garden and a mulberry tree' in Chelsea. Has been raining here since Tuesday afternoon, and it is the school treat tomorrow. Sends love to Annie and Sophie, and asks Elizabeth to tell Annie that Hague [her old housekeeper] left his morning 'under Nixon's care'. Hopes Robin [William Robert Price?] gets away before the weather changes in the south; Robert must feel he is 'living under a waterfall at the Lakes'.
