Scope and content

Wallington, Cambo, Northumberland. - Relieved that Elizabeth will only have to be in London for four or five days [for treatment carried out or advised by Dr Scharlieb]; advises her to 'get it over as soon as possible'; expects she will be a good patient and that she will not 'feel much pain, as there will be nothing to heal'. Will not come down to London if Elizabeth feels 'quite comfortable about it', though she and Sir George are agreed she will come at any time Elizabeth wants. Reassures her that it is not serious, only 'an unpleasant "setting to rights"'. Is going to meet Annie [Philips] at Leeds today then they will go on to The Park together tomorrow. Booa [Mary Prestwich] thanks Elizabeth for her letter; she is sending a cream cheese. Miss Martin is staying with Sir George while she is away. Has heard of Mrs Butcher's and knows it is 'a good place, & excellent nurses'.
