Scope and content

Wallington, Cambo, Morpeth. - Thinks Elizabeth is right to change [Julian's nanny]; thinks she had become 'really unsettled and uncomfortable'. Hopes Miss E[vans] gets married, since waiting for it seems to have made her more nervous, and that Elizabeth will find someone who can do some teaching if she wants. Feels a little disconnected after six months in the South. [Charles and Mary's] 'Cambo children' are nice; they took Mary out with Marjorie for a drive yesterday. Charlie is coming home tomorrow; George is 'extremely interesting about Italy', and hopes to get Geoffrey Young's ambulance there; expects he will go with it and be very useful. She and Sir George are reading "Emma Darwin [: A Century of Family Letters" edited by Henrietta Litchfield]; very odd that the Wedgwood family, at least the women, 'seem to have taken no interest at all in the pottery'; would think they 'would have been so proud of it'. Glad Julian recovered quickly; thinks he will cope well with all changes.
