Scope and content

Rome. - Pleased the nurse Elizabeth has found seems so suitable; hopes she will let her and Julian 'take their own way of settling down'. Her own bronchitis 'drags on' and she finds it hard to keep cheerful; Pantlin is 'extraordinarily good' to her, nursing her with 'poultices & rubs', as well as washing, dressing, and cooking for her. Is starting to feel uneasy about the journey home. Sir George is 'awfully kind & good' but she know it is beginning to 'tell on him' and he must return to his work by the middle of next month. Keeps wondering if she will now be an invalid. Good that Ch[arles] and M[ary] are here, though Mary's energy is 'just a little overwhelming'. Glad Elizabeth is enjoying the [Gordon] Bottomleys' visit and seeing lots of friends. Annie [Philips] offered to come out and help to nurse Caroline; she is 'the most affectionate of sisters'. Charles and Mary are returning on Thursday; Charles is enjoying seeing the Forum and other classical remains. Is reading Miss [Florence] Nightingale's "Life" and finding it very interesting; a 'kind lady' also lends her novels, 'more or less bad'.
