Scope and content

Wallington, Cambo, Morpeth. - Glad Elizabeth spends her evenings at Leith Hill Place; sure it is helpful to them [the Vaughan Williams family] and more cheerful for her; hopes that Robert will return soon and Julian will 'greet him affectionately'. Pauline has had influenza, but is recovering, and nobody else seems to have caught it; Mary was fortunately at home, and Charles away. They have decided to leave a week earlier, as Sir George is worried about strikes; he also wants a change, having finished his book. The school treat therefore needs to be put forward and she has a lot to do in a short time. They plan to spend the 7-18 December in London, then go to Welcombe. Miss [Lily?] Noble visited for a night; seems to know Elizabeth's friends the Oranjes well and like them; her engagement is off 'in quite a friendly happy way'. Says Elizabeth should 'get a shawl for "Hannah Priscilla"'; is sure she will like it; Julian can have a coat next year if Elizabeth likes, but not a fur coat 'as no one should walk in one'. Sends a diary for next year, and hopes 'pleasant things may be put down in it'.
