Scope and content

25 Grosvenor Place, S.W. - Apologies for not replying sooner to Bessie's letter; the 'days fly by under these peculiar circumstances', but she loved getting it and often thinks how sad it is that Bessie and Bob will not be at the wedding - though they are quite right that she and George do not think it is 'anybody's duty to be there!'. Asks her to think of them on the 19th (the day has been changed). Everything is getting very exciting: 'house, furniture, clothes...'; they hope to get the house 'into a state of rough-finishedness before we go', but everything is taking longer than planned; it is great fun and since George is busy with his book she does most of the 'fussing' by herself. He has now gone for three days walking in Wales so that on their honeymoon he can be content with her length of walks; they are going first to 'a little place in the wilds of Surrey called Borough Farm', where she used to go each summer with her family, about halfway between Godalming and Hindhead; when George wants some 'real exercise' he can walk to see George Meredith at Box Hill. They then go to Cornwall for about ten days, return to arrange their house properly, and will leave for Italy about 10 April; they are taking their bicycles and will 'wander from Ravenna down to Volaterrae [Volterra] & back via Pisa to Como'. Glad Bessie and Bob are having a 'delightful time at La Croix [-Valmer]; wonders how much longer they are staying.
