Scope and content

Wallington, Cambo, Morpeth. - Thanks Elizabeth for her letter; neither of them are 'very openly emotional', so it means a great deal. Supposes they will get through somehow, but 'it is not very easy'. Julian has had 'all sorts of "larks"' since Elizabeth left, and only spent one evening at home; he spent a 'blissful' afternoon at the station and went yesterday to see the sheep market; he also played cricket one day and is said to have bowled out Kitty. Miss Evans does not think it hurts him to get excited, and he is sleeping well. Originally enclosing part of a letter from Annie [Philips] about Denmark. Asks if Elizabeth has heard again about her sister [Mien Röntgen]; Holland will be 'overwhelmed with refugees'. Sorry Julian has such a long journey on Tuesday.
