Scope and content

Wallington, Cambo, Morpeth. - Thinks that Miss Boneleu's [?] letters are very promising; though there is a little 'pedantry' she is probably trying to give the impression of being a 'real teacher', and she ought to be able to interest Julian. Advises Elizabeth to engage her; expects she will find it less of a strain than class teaching. Good that Bob has seen her as she is likely to join them at meals. Looks forward to seeing them in the middle of August; Mary says she would like a visit from Elizabeth and Bob, so perhaps they could go in the middle and leave Julian at Wallington. Aunt Annie [Philips] is coming on 12 August for ten days. The school children are here today [for a treat] but the weather is 'doubtful'. Was 'astonished' by the news about Jan Hubrecht [his entry into the Dutch diplomatic service?]; Sir George thinks it a good thing, and she supposes he always seems 'more a "man of the world" than a student'; hopes he will have a 'prosperous' life, and is sure he will be popular everywhere.
