Scope and content

Welcombe, Stratford on Avon. - Discussion of the fine weather; 'pleasant to think of the thousands of holiday makers who will enjoy the next 3 or 4 days [Easter]'. Pauline takes up a lot of their time; she 'is a sweet thing, but she cannot do much yet'. They think the Education Bill 'very good in the main, but too much in favour of the Church'. Would like to hear what Professor [Ambrosius] Hubrecht saw at Naples; the accounts [of the eruption of Vesuvius] 'seem somewhat contradictory' but it must be terrible. Hopes the aquarium and museum untouched. That part of the world was 'much more civilised... in Pliny's time'; nothing in the 'unhappy villages' destroyed this time would be worth looking at if dug up a hundred or so years later. Has had a nice letter from Robert; is glad he has a 'good party together'; sure they will enjoy themselves and 'how hard they will talk'. She is better, and Sir George is very happy. Hopes the good weather will last for the wedding.
