Scope and content

Wallington, Cambo, Northumberland. - Glad to hear that Elizabeth's shopping was so satisfactory; Mary was 'delighted with the scissors', and Caroline likes to think of them 'both cutting out little garments'. Sure Elizabeth will get a 'pretty cot & basket' from Smith; thinks 'their taste is better than in the larger shops'. They had fine weather on Saturday; the Ex[hibitio]n was successful and the sale of work 'really very nice', making fifty pounds with things still left over to sell. Thinks Elizabeth's "Independent" was left in the billiard room; will send it to her. They have got [Plato's?] "Symposium" and are reading it. Misses Elizabeth. News of Aunt Margaret [Holland] is 'very bad'. Fun for Elizabeth to have 'Mr Jan' [Hubrecht?]; wishes he could be at Wallington on Wednesday. Encloses five shillings with thanks.
