Scope and content

Wallington, Cambo, Morpeth. - Hopes to hear that Elizabeth has arranged to take Julian to the sea, where if he is outside all day he 'may revive quickly'. Mary's nurse is back; hopes that Miss Clarke [the governess] will also return soon. The children are very good but 'a little wild, & want to get to work again'. Wallington seems very still with no children. Mary and Humphry will have their adenoids operated on next week, then go to spend the winter at Stocks Cottage, with Janet going 'up & down [to London]'. George writes very interestingly: 'it is a wonderful work, & he seems to have blossomed out into a most wonderful organizer'; sometimes he has to work eighteen or twenty hour stretches.
