Scope and content

Wallington, Cambo, Northumberland. - Hopes that Elizabeth and Robert have got through the heavy snow in Italy, and that Ravello is warm. She and Sir George leave on Wednesday for London and hope to start for the continent on 16 January, staying at Paris for a couple of nights then reaching Milan by 21 January before travelling on to Florence, Rome, and Naples. Would be glad if Elizabeth and Robert could spend a few days with them at Naples; they will then go to Sicily for three or four weeks and stop at Ravello and La Cava [de' Tirreni] on the way back. Has been very busy packing, and is going this afternoon 'to say goodbye to poor Mrs Young'; reports that Canon [Edward Mallet] Young has died suddenly. Had a 'pleasant visit' from the Sidgwicks and Mr Whitley and have been alone since Thursday; the servants enjoyed their dance on Friday very much. The Queen [of the Netherlands]'s marriage 'seems a very pretty and natural affair'; hopes it will be very happy.
