Scope and content

2, Cheyne Gardens, S.W. - Sends the 'little portrait of the Stadtholder [Julian?]' she promises; asks Bessie to pass on the photograph of Humphry to Caroline. Loved Bessie's letter about 'Julian's as yet inarticulate spirits'; she shouldn't mind his speech a little late, as she herself has just had '3 Trevies together at breakfast' - George, Charles, and Mary - and her 'head is still singing with it'. Is being 'such a lady', since 'if things go all right this week & next there'll be a new little Trevy being made in this world'; is resting on the sofa, taking hansoms beyond walking distance, and 'enjoy[s] it very much' as she was 'born lazy'; gives her lots of time for writing her 'Theo book'. Good that Bob is having a nice time at Settignano; wonders whether the 'wandering William [Arnold Forster?] will ever make up his mind to start in pursuit'; he is meant to be staying with them for a night or two on the way, but she has heard nothing from him.
