Scope and content

Chief Secretary's Lodge, Phoenix Park, Dublin. - Thanks Bobbie for his letter: is very interested to hear about the 'new boys and masters, & who are ill'. They have had 'great gales' recently, but there is frost today. Asks him to send his Sunday letter to Welcombe, as she will leave here early on Monday. They will soon pack up here; the 'soldier boxes' will go into the book box [see also 22/72]. Hopes Bob is enjoying his football. Bob's father attended a levee at the Castle yesterday, and 'carried a big two-handled sword before Lord Spencer [the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland]'; he will carry it again at the drawing room, and she thinks it will be 'very funny'. Asks Bob if he would like any 'crests' sent to him. Will write again soon. Asks if he has got the hymn book.
