Scope and content

Wallington, Cambo, Northumberland. - She and Sir George are very pleased Elizabeth and Robert enjoyed themselves, and that Elizabeth 'so thoroughly appreciate[s] this country'; there is 'little to attract outwardly in the manufacturing districts' and it is 'only the interest in the people who live there' which makes life tolerable. Very quiet on Saturday, as George and [Maurice?] Amos went for a mountain walk, sleeping at Eldon and returning on Sunday evening, while Charles went to Hepple and returns today. The Philipses have come, but they have had a telegram from Sir W[alter] Phillimore saying that his wife was ill so they could not come; a blow since the Nobles had already failed them, and only Miss Riddell coming today to be company for the Philipses. They seem happy, however; hopes 'the girl will not find it very dull'. She seems nice, but Caroline wishes she would not do her hair 'so large'. Booa [Mary Prestwich] was glad of Elizabeth's letter, and asks her to say that the box will be sent today. George has recovered his bag with everything in it; there was nothing 'consumable on the spot' like Elizabeth's wine. Hopes the 'two quiet days' at the Park [home of Annie Philips] will rest Elizabeth before she starts again. Will be interesting for Elizabeth to visit Mr [Herbert?] Jones at Hawarden.
