Scope and content

Turvey Rectory, Bedford - Encloses a letter from a friend's daughter, Bessie J. Black, providing information about the socialist "Ruskin House" in Heacham, a school supported by the Fabian Society and run by [Bellerby] Lowerison, a man she doesn't know. Harriet notes that Bessie's mother is one of the Neville-Rolfes of Heacham Hall, Norfolk, and is descended from Pocahontas; Harriet's recent stay in Felixstowe coincided with the disaster in the North Sea [the Dogger Bank incident].
