Scope and content

Wallington, Cambo, Northumberland. - Good that the little boy [Charles and Mary Trevelyan's son] 'arrived so promptly'; both he and Mary sound to be doing well. He is to be called George Lowthian. They are now concentrating their interest on 'the next event' [the birth of Elizabeth and Robert's child]. Plans to be with them by the 27 or 18 November, but Elizabeth must say if she wants her to come sooner, telegraphing if necessary. Glad Elizabeth's sister [Mien Röntgen] and the nurse are coming. Mary seems to have 'got through wonderfully well'. Sir George is 'hard at work again' after his visit to the Park [Annie Philip's house] and the shooting party. They have been arranging some Wedgwood china, which Aunt Margaret left to him, in the passage; she left Caroline 'a charming thimble in a box' and both thimble and china have 'family histories attached'.
