Scope and content

Welcombe, Stratford on Avon. - Apologises for not writing sooner; knows Elizabeth will be busy with Julian 'on her hands''; hopes Miss Boucher [?] will return soon and be more content. The Bryces were here last Sunday; she is 'so much nicer for having seen more of the world', and he and Sir George had 'no end of talk'. The meadows are 'flooded up to the road' but it is not cold. The cook has gone for a holiday, while Hearn [the butler] is not well; fortunately they have no company at the moment. Maria [Springett] came from Gros[venor] Cr[escent] yesterday; the vans have been unloaded here and at Wallington, so the 'house is really given up'. The rest of the contents will be sold on Tuesday; she has brought away all they care for and is curious to know what the rest will fetch. Has never been without a house in London, so it is a strange feeling. Sir George is fairly well, though 'up & down in spirits with the news'. Booa [Mary Prestwich] was very tired, but not over-done by her hard week in London. Wishes she would not work so hard, but has 'no influence over her'. Sends love to Julian, and asks if he is strong yet.
