Scope and content

Wallington, Cambo, Morpeth. - Good that Elizabeth got through the long journey well, and that Julian enjoyed himself here; his cousins [Mary and Humphry] are very sorry to have missed him; they have both grown and look well. The Cambo family [Charles and Mary] came back yesterday and all the children went to meet them: 'the road from the station was covered by a straggling line of Trevelyans!'. Janet 'makes the best of things but it is trying for her'. A separate sheet notes that they are amused to hear 'the Spencers two girls from Netherwitton' have gone to Miss Weisse's school; they are 'perfectly wild and have no manners'; also that they had a pleasant visit from Dr [Henry] Hadow last Sunday.

Notes area


The second sheet, labelled 11/34 (2) may not belong with the first; since Elizabeth had just returned home from a visit to Wallington, the reference to a visit 'last Sunday' from Dr Hadow is problematic.
