Scope and content

Wallington, Cambo, Morpeth. - Is sorry Elizabeth is so worried about the change of nurse; hopes the 'lady nurse' will suit, and thinks Elizabeth is wise having her to see her; she must try not to mind about 'Nannie' as it is not for long and J[ulian] will not come to harm in a few weeks; asks whether she could get Nurse Godwin back for a while. Julian would learn 'so much without real lessons, from anyone knowing modern methods'. Asks Elizabeth to let her know if she will be stopping in London on 5 November; they could spend all of Thursday together apart from the time of Caroline's appointment with Carter and a dressmaker. Sir George comes then, and they start on Sunday [for Italy]; would come to see Julian then but Sir George wants to start then. Does not like Elizabeth being alone this autumn; encourages her to get someone to stay with her, and not to 'fret' as Julian is 'very satisfactory' and it is good he does not mind losing his nurse. Asks if she should let Booa [Mary Prestwich] know about the nurse. Sends some old photographs of Bob which Annie [Philips] has sent her; asks if he is the 'practical element in the party of the 3 poets [Bob, Lascelles Abercrombie and Wilfrid Gibson]. Is 'trying to understand the Land policy': reading the Report and the speeches.
