Scope and content

Wallington, Cambo, Northumberland. - Glad Robert and Elizabeth are going north; there has been a change in the weather today and 'perhaps the great heat is over' though there is no sign of rain yet; yesterday was the hottest day she remembers here, and though they walked before breakfast in the shade of the east wood, the sun was 'too fierce' to go into the garden. Would prefer Robert and Elizabeth's visit not to be earlier than the 29th or 30th July, as originally planned; has arranged some activities for the end of their stay, when Annie [Philips] will also be there, and there would be 'domestic' problems if they came on the 25th. Will write to Mr [Roger] Fry and invite him for the first week in August; would be interested to see the drawings he has made [to illustrate Robert's "Polyphemus and Other Poems"] if he could bring them. Hopes Robert will protect himself against any 'serious loss' in publication of the book. Hopes Elizabeth will not be tired out by London and the journey. The 'new corner seat' is very comfortable but 'needs much "turning down"'.
