Scope and content

Originally enclosing a cutting from the "Manchester Guardian", which may interest Julian; knows he has 'long been much interested in American cotton'; knows nobody can be expected to read 'all that dull stuff about the Leonids and Nova Cygni'. Julian's mother is currently 'teaching the kitchen-maid at Tanhurst to play the violin' in the study, while he and [Harry] Norton sit by the drawing room fire. 'Mammy's hand' is getting better slowly. Peter [Elms] is 'shouting in the garden'. The sun is shining and there is some peat, 'or, as Mammy calls it, turf' on the fire. Mr Reynier came for a visit recently. Now has a letter to write to his Spanish friend Juan Menendez y Aranz[z de la Torre], which he should have done two months ago; is afraid Julian's handwriting is getting 'better and neater' than his own.
