Scope and content

Firenze. - The news of the death of Elizabeth's aunt in Robert's letter was a shock, though they knew how ill she had been for some time. Knows how much her aunt meant to her, since she had always lived with her and 'received a mother's care from her'. Glad Robert is there to comfort her; her recent visit, when her aunt was a little better, was very well-timed. Very sorry for Elizabeth's uncle. Glad to have met her aunt, and will 'always remember her kind sweet face, and refined charming manners'; regrets that they could not talk freely since speaking made her cough. Hopes to see Elizabeth and Robert at Naples, as she does not think Elizabeth's family will ask her to cut short her time in Italy since she can go to the Hague on her return. Good that her aunt 'did not linger very long & painfully after the illness was hopeless'.
