Scope and content

Trieste. - Condolences on the death of Lady Houghton; they were both very shocked to read the news in the paper. Richard 'has no courage to write' so she has undertaken to do so. Looks back over their long friendship: the help offered to them by the Houghtons when they were 'in trouble', especially to Isobel herself early in their marriage when Richard was in Africa and she was 'lonely and miserable'.
