Scope and content

Wallington, Cambo, Morpeth. - Mary called Dr Williams to see Phyllis, who is still unwell, so she stopped by on the way to examine Julian. She thinks he should wear the belt for a year, which should solve the problem [an umbilical hernia?], but that he is strong, healthy, and large for his age; she also thinks he risks becoming flat footed, so Caroline has spoken to his nurse about having a support put in his shoes. The sneezing does not matter; but she will give him the medicine which Dr Cornish has sent. Yesterday they took Miss [Lily] Noble to Belsay [the Middletons' home] and saw everyone but 'Mrs Hugh' who is doing well [after giving birth], and there were many enquiries about Elizabeth. Miss Noble then went home in her motor car. Julian was 'drawing motors this morning with great energy'. She is going to a nursing meeting this afternoon, then to tea with Mary. Hopes Mr B[ottomley] has recovered from the journey. Asks when she should start sending her letters to Elizabeth to the Netherlands.
