Scope and content

8, Grosvenor Crescent, S.W. - Wishes Elizabeth a happy birthday for tomorrow; hopes she has ordered the writing desk as her present from Caroline, or will have it sent to the new house if she has not done so yet. Went to Broadwood's yesterday about the new piano which will be sent off 'via Guildford & Reading' at the beginning of June; asks if Elizabeth could oversee this; encloses a label to be fixed to the case. Saw Sir Henry and Lady Howard yesterday, who asked after Elizabeth and Robert. She and Sir George are going to see [Beaumont's] "The Knight of the Burning Pestle" this afternoon; they will leave London on 8 June and are giving parties at Welcombe on the 21st and 23rd; would be very grateful if Elizabeth and Robert could come and help. Charlie will come if he can, but Parliament will probably have begun, while G[eorge] and J[anet] will be in the north then. Sir Sidney Colvin is 'very jealous' of Elizabeth and Robert's new house on Leith Hill. Is sending Robert a "Times [Literary] Supplement" since Sir George 'thought the article so good' [a review of "The Birth of Parsival"?].
