Scope and content

Heidelberg [on printed notepaper for Garden Corner, West Road, Cambridge]. - Bessie's letter and enclosures reached him abroad; he and Mary have had a 'very nice 4 days at the Hague', where he found many letters from Marlborough to Heinsius in the Archives. Janet has joined them now, and they are on their way to Blenheim [Blindheim]. Thanks Bessie for sending the 'old papers'; the one on Pitt was 'not much use', but he is glad to have the 'famous pamphlet' advocating the murder of [Oliver] Cromwell, "Killing No Murder", which he may have bound when he gets home. So, 'it is the last of Welcombe'; hopes it 'won't become a Popery-hole', but everything else is 'most satisfactory'; glad it is 'off [Bessie's] hands'.
