Scope and content

Welcombe, Stratford on Avon. - Is 'distressed' that Elizabeth is 'laid up'; hopes she is feeling better; she must be careful about travelling but hopes she can get to the sea when the weather is better. Sir George had a chill last night but is better this morning. Finds Mary a good companion, and she can amuse herself; she has started a letter to Elizabeth and has a 'high opinion' of her nurse, who she says 'keeps Julian in very good order'. They have been reading "The Roman Journals of [Ferdinand] Gregorovius' which is 'interesting and amusing', and have just sent it back to the London Library; it would be good to read in bed. Asks if there is any chance of getting Nurse Godwin at once; sure Elizabeth needs someone to look after her and 'however good dear Bob is, he is not a nurse!'.
