Scope and content

Wallington, Cambo, Northumberland. - Annie [Philips] is here for a fortnight; they went on Thursday to Holy Island, which was a long day but interesting; they enjoyed the drive over the sands and the view of Bamburgh from the island, the light on the water 'was just what excited Turner'. Today they are going to have a picnic tea at Sweethope Lake. Pantlin is beginning 'the flannels'; supposes Elizabeth likes the pattern she made for the others. The school children are coming tomorrow; Caroline is 'entertaining some High School mistresses on the 14th'; Mary and Pauline are coming for a few days at the end of the month. The Exhibition is on the third Saturday in August; they will probably have their party the following week; Caroline must also have a garden party this year. Must start thinking about visitors, so asks Elizabeth to say when she and Robert would like to come. They are hoping for news of Janet [who is due to give birth]. Annie is going to Sicily next winter.
