Scope and content

Wallington, Cambo, Northumberland. - Very pleased that Elizabeth's uncle is better; hopes the improvement will continue and that he is not in too much pain. She was right to go to him at once. If she does return and go to the Home [for medical treatment] on the 29th, Booa [Mary Prestwich] can come up on 2 November and Caroline herself will be in town on the 4th; Booa can stay as long as Elizabeth likes, and Miss Martin will be 'delighted' to visit, as she is not far from the Home, so Elizabeth will not feel 'quite deserted' before Booa comes. If Elizabeth decides to put it off, thinks Booa could come any time before Christmas; advises her to 'get it over' if she is no longer so anxious about her uncle. Supposes she would not like to have it done in Holland, where her sister could be near her as 'they have all had so much illness to look after' and Robert will want to return to oversee the book ["Polyphemus and Other Poems"]. Sir George sends his love.
