Scope and content

Wallington, Cambo, Northumberland. - Janet and the babies [Pauline and Theodore] arrived yesterday evening; George and Charles are taking a walk for a couple of days, in 'glorious' weather. The old farmer was found drowned in Fallowlees Loch on Friday. The 'patients' in the local area are all getting better, except for one poor child who has died; they are keeping up strict quarantine; has been much worried about it, but is sure they have done the right thing and that 'everyone is helping to prevent the spread of the disease'. Hopes Robert is 'quite right again'. Sent a melon yesterday; asks if the grouse she sent arrived or were spoiled by the heat. Asks if Elizabeth has heard about a nurse; Janet has a 'nice looking nurse maid'. Theodore is a 'very fine big intelligent boy, but not pretty'. Asks how the road [to the new house] is getting on.
