Scope and content

Welcombe, Stratford on Avon. - Glad Elizabeth is feeling better; thinks she has been 'keeping up too long' and should rest more. The river is flooding all over the fields and the farmers are suffering. Mr Clarke came last night as it is the rent day; they are giving the farmers back 15 % and she has had letters of thanks from many of them. Charlie's treatment seems to be 'bring[ing] out the complaint'. The children go home on Saturday as G[eorge] and J[anet] are not staying on; Mary has been good, and spent a lot of time with Sir George 'over the puzzles'; [Humphry] is 'very sweet & funny'. Worries about Elizabeth being cold if she goes to lodgings [by the sea].
