Scope and content

Stocks Cottage, Tring. - Bessie's news is 'thrilling'; Janet and George are 'delighted'. Agrees that it must be 'the force of example that's done it': now there will be 'three more little Trevies' by the end of the year. Gathered that Bessie was not 'at all eating [her] heart about the non-appearance of the little gentleman', but she must be pleased that he is not 'staying away forever'; hopes he has a 'nice provisional name'. Clothes are a 'fearful nuisance', and she seems to spend most of her time putting elastic into her skirts and so on; recommends a dressmaker and says where she got her 'elastic-fronted stays'. Can also give advice on baby clothes; asks if Bessie is planning to make everything herself. Wonders when they will next see each other; should be back in town by the middle of June, but will be in 'rather a stationary condition' by then.
