Scope and content

Welcombe, Stratford on Avon. - Sure Elizabeth and Robert will have followed the election results with 'much delight and astonishment'; it is extraordinary; a 'peaceful revolution, that have far reaching consequences'. The results in Surrey, Cheshire and Harrow, as well as Wales, are 'very wonderful'; the Tories will probably only have about a hundred and sixty seats. It 'seems a great responsibility to have such a majority'; hopes the Government rises to the occasion. Charles and George have been working in Yorkshire since the Elland election and F[rancis] Acland's success is hoped for; they and their families will all be at Welcombe by Wednesday and 'it will be amusing to have both the babies'. Meta Hearn [daughter of William Hearne, the butler] was taken to hospital with sudden appendicitis; she is recovering now but her parents were very anxious. The Tories here are 'very civil'; 'of course' they do not talk politics, but she thinks it has been a 'great shock'; the 'clergy everywhere are very quiet'. The little piano is in good tune; hopes Mary will play. Asks if Elizabeth has had much music, and whether [Lina] Waterfield can accompany her.
