Scope and content

On headed notepaper for Welcombe, Stratford on Avon:- Thanks his mother for her letter: has got the collars [see 45/243?] and will be able to 'go on with them for some time'. Grandpapa 'seems the same as usual'; he goes out 'driving in the open carriage'; sometimes Robert accompanies him and walks back. Does not mind riding - goes out every other day, and 'the horse is very gentle' - but prefers walking. Hopes his mother's parties will be a success. Is using his dumbbells every day, and reading Macaulay; reads 'other things in the afternoon and evening'. It is 'very hot indeed'. Has got his boots mended. Hopes his father is well.
