Scope and content

Wallington, Cambo, Northumberland. - Christmas wishes from Sir George and herself; they hope Elizabeth and Robert are having a good time, and send 'kind and hearty greetings' to the 'family party'. Glad they crossed earlier in the week, as there was a 'terrible gale' on Thursday which did much damage to trees and buildings. The school children's party has been held; it was a German [?] tree this year and 'looked very pretty in the Hall'. They hope to see Charles tomorrow, and the Arthur Sidgwicks, 'with two of their young people' and a friend of George's are coming to stay a few days. They will go to London on 9 Jan before starting [for Sicily?]. All has been quiet; Sir George and George did some shooting yesterday and much enjoyed it. Hopes Elizabeth found her aunt better. Says in a postscript that she has paid a bill; Elizabeth must ask her for the eighteen shillings when they next see each other; does not think it was dear.
