Scope and content

Welcombe, Stratford on Avon. - Hopes that Julian is well again. They were 'taken aback by the arrival of the Twins [Hugh and Florence], but C[harles] and M[ary] seem very pleased; if Elizabeth visits, asks her to report on how strong she thinks the babies are: the boy seems small. Nurse Robinson is good and experienced. Offered to have the older children at once, but have not had a reply. Asks if Elizabeth would like to visit at the end of April or beginning of May, when it is very pretty here with the blossoms. Still recovering slowly [from shingles], with much pain and irritation; it is dull for Sir George, but they are better quiet; the 'daily anxiety [about the war] is very wearing'. Hopes Elizabeth will have her music competition; asks if she has been playing much.
