Scope and content

Writing at the desk in his room, where Pusska is pushing against his arm so he finds it difficult to write; expects the cat 'wants to send.. his love'. Soon after Julian left, saw a young fox cub in the wood on the way to Holmbury,; he 'looked very pretty', but Robert expects he will 'have one or two of our chickens'. Mr [Francis] Birrell is coming to stay the night. Tomorrow, will go to the Lake Hunt near Keswick, then to spend a couple of nights with Mr [Frank] Marshall at Hawes End [sic: Hawse End], then for a couple of weeks to Silverdale to see Mr and Mrs [Gordon and Emily] Bottomley. Has bathed at Tanhurst several times lately, though it was too cold the last couple of mornings; the pond is not quite full, so it is 'rather difficult to climb out'; it has not begun to smell badly yet. Hopes Julian's tame rabbit is well.
