Scope and content

Wallington, Cambo, Northumberland. - Returned 'quite comfortably', and found Sir George 'well & cheerful'. Miss Martin had been 'a very good companion'. Sidney Lee, Miss [Lily?] Noble and Ella Pease came on Sunday, but they are alone again now. Will send Elizabeth's Christmas present with the hamper going to Gr[osvenor] Cr[escen[t]; it will be there on Saturday morning so can be collected if she stays in town for Friday night. There will be 'a little "pot pourri" in the parcel also'; sent some flowers yesterday. Sorry Elizabeth's cough continued to trouble her; asks if it is gone now and what the doctor thought of it; also when they plan to go abroad. Good that Elizabeth can leave Mrs E[nticknap] in charge of the house. Hopes Mrs [Helen] Fry keeps well and that 'the event [the birth of her child?] will come off soon'. Madame Grandmont has written kindly, and seems 'cheerful about her husband' Wishes Elizabeth could see the 'school children's [Christmas] tree. It is so pretty in the Hall'.
