Scope and content

Wallington, Cambo, Morpeth. - Sorry to hear that Julian's 'little weakness' [an umbilical hernia?] has not yet gone; perhaps a truss might help. They must get him as strong as possible; he will spend all autumn at Wallington and recommends a month or longer of sea air in the spring. Knows that the operation is effective if it does not go in a couple of years. Booa [Mary Prestwich] says it is not uncommon and hopes Elizabeth will not worry. Very glad she has Nurse Shepherd for a while. Is much better and hopes to go downstairs this evening. Hopes Bob's inoculations do not make him too uncomfortable. Delighted to hear that Elizabeth is to have her 'picture taken by such a good artist'. The children are well and go to Cambo every morning 'for lessons, or drill, or class'. Mrs Runciman has gone; Mary is doing very well, their house is 'quite full' and she expects they 'all play noisy games round her bed'. Hopes Elizabeth enjoys her trip to Cambridge; asks to be remembered to Elizabeth's cousin Marie [Hubrecht]
