Scope and content

Garden Corner, West Road, Cambridge. - Has now received the King's Letters Patent for his appointment as Master of Trinity, and will begin to perform his duties from his admittance on 16 November, though he and Janet will not move into the Lodge until January since much needs to be done ;in the way of painting etc and labour and materials are scarce'. Hopes that Bob will soon visit after that; does not think it is worth him coming for the ceremony, since it must be done 'with maimed rights', trains are 'awful', and all Cambridge houses 'are crowded up with billettees and refugees'. No Colleges have yet been hit [by bombs], and so far everything is 'fairly quiet'; hopes Bob and his household are well.
