Scope and content

Wallington, Cambo, Morpeth. - Glad that Elizabeth has decided to take on Miss Boneleu and hopes Julian likes her; Janet's governess has turned out to be 'a great success'. Thinks an 'educated woman (however inexperienced)' will be easier to deal with. Asks when Elizabeth proposes to come to Wallington. Annie [Philips] comes on 12 August, and the Ilberts from 21-24 August. Charles and Mary are away for a few days from 25 August, and Kitty may stay at Wallington; Janet and the children come on 1 September. George and Janet visited on Sunday; George goes to Italy again this week to arrange about the ambulance; he says 'practical work & arrangements are not congenial' but she thinks he does it well, and he thinks it is the best he can do. A 'nice gentle little widow' is staying at Wallington, liked by both Caroline and Sir George. Sorry to hear Mrs Vaughan Williams still suffers from shingles: she should see a specialist; she herself still has some irritation from her outbreak.
