Scope and content

8, Grosvenor Crescent, S.W. - Reached London at noon yesterday, went to a sub-committee meeting, then returned home to get tea ready for Sir George; very good to see him again and he seems well. He is 'distressed' she has not 'seen [Elizabeth] through to the crisis [giving birth]'. They think she had better go to Welcombe with him unless they hear from Elizabeth tomorrow morning; she can easily come to Surrey from there if she is wanted. Pantlin is to go in to a home of Dr Thorne's as she would not get into a hospital for a long time, so Carter will go to Welcombe with Caroline. Charlie visited this morning and will dine with them; Janet came to lunch, her nurse has had influenza; she is weaning Theodore now and goes to Stocks this week and Welcombe on 7 January. Charlie and Sir George 'very glad that the Lords are negociating' but she is 'not so well pleased'. Has very much enjoyed spending so much time with Elizabeth and Robert; knows their 'home and friends and surroundings' very well now. Sends best regards to Miss Noel.
