Scope and content

Welcombe, Stratford on Avon. - Thanks Elizabeth for her letter, which tells her much more about the babies [Hugh and Florence] than she has yet heard; they will be 'an anxiety' for a few months and she hopes the nurse understands how to feed them, since she does not think Mary can usually nurse for long. Sir George has done 'wonderfully' so far, recovering well from the chloroform, with not much pain in the wound. The Birmingham doctor, Douglas Heath was 'a very clever energetic man'. Looks forward to seeing them all; hopes Robert will come for a visit and leave Elizabeth and Julian there as long as he can. Janet may come on 2 May to take M[ary] and H[umphry] away; no-one else is coming. Glad Elizabeth is not going to Holland, which would be very interesting but 'too dangerous'. Janet saw George off yesterday; will be a very interesting visit to America if he gets there safely. Returns to the letter to say that the doctor has been and is happy for Sir George to get about, as long as he keeps his hand still. Is glad Nannie [Evans] is well.
