Scope and content

Wallington, Cambo, Northumberland. - Arrived on Thursday evening and found Sir George 'quite poorly with a cold', but he is more or less recovered now. It was 'very vexatious about the Stratford election', but it is 'no worse than before'; shows 'how little reaction there is yet [to the Second Boer War?] in the country'. 'Even the local paper is ashamed of the rioting'. Glad that Miss Martin has been to see Elizabeth, and glad she likes her; she is 'a wonderfully sensibly, & thoroughly genuine person, & the boys owe a good deal to her, in their early training'. Hope Robert had a good time while away. Looks forward to their visit; Robert 'must bring some work, & then there will be three ills grinding out words'.
