Scope and content

Ellergreen, Kendal. - The news about Molly [her miscarriage] 'is a sad & senseless business... such utter waste'; means she will have to keep quieter in future, which she will hat;. George has been to Wallington and found Molly did 'one or two rather mad things' early one, which Caroline had been 'too discreet' to mention to Janet. Almost a relief, since such things can be avoided in the future. Gives what she thinks is Mrs Hutchins the dressmaker's address; Bessie can mention either Janet or her sister's name. Returning to Robin Ghyll this evening after staying with [Charles and Edith] Cropper for a couple of nights; Mary and Humphry are very happy there at Robin Ghyll; Mary 'has taken to bathing in a little stream close by'. Janet's 'history' is going on quite well, also her 'story of Theo'. Will be lovely to see Bessie at Wallington; looks forward to seeing Julian 'on his feet'.
