Scope and content

Wallington, Cambo, Morpeth. - Thinks Elizabeth has come to 'the best & easiest & least expensive' decision about Julian; if she decides to 'take the chance of a Zeppelin raid' she must not think of it, and get his operation over as soon as possible. Tells her to let them know what the surgeon's fee and so on is, since Sir George is keen to help. Glad that Elizabeth has recovered. Julian's letters are 'very original'; Booa [Mary Prestwich] has just got one. Is sure he will like going to London, and he will not mind lying still as much as some children would. Janet's children seem to be well; they will spend the winter at Stocks Cottage and Janet will go up [to London] 'for her business'; she does a great deal and 'seems no worse for it'.
