Scope and content

Stocks Cottage, Tring. - Has received the 'little nighties', which are 'waiting for No. 3 (who is however not yet in sight!'. Is 'bursting with advice about weaning & bottles' which is very detailed, including a recommendation for Savory & Moore's baby food; suggest Bessie get Mrs Langton Hewer's "Our Baby" if she does not have it already. She herself breastfed Mary for as long as Elizabeth plans to with Paul; was not doing much good for Theo by about five and a half months old so stopped a month sooner. Asks if Bessie plans to come to Wallington in July or the beginning of August; they will be there themselves until the middle of August.
