Scope and content

The Shiffolds, Holmbury St Mary, Dorking. - He and Bessie are 'so sorry' to hear from his mother about her influenza, but relieved that there is 'now no fever'. Hopes she will soon recover, and be able to return to Welcombe. Bessie is very well. They heard this morning that Madame Grandmont, who was due to visit today, has had a 'bad attack of neuralgia' and her doctor will not let her come for a week: 'very disappointing'.

Has 'finished canvassing Coldharbour', finding that 'exactly half' the voters were 'certain for Brodie', with no doubt a few more who will vote for him; now has to canvass Ockley, which will probably be less good. Brodie is speaking there tomorrow evening, after a short meeting at a village school about two miles from Ockley, and Robert has agreed to take the chair - expects he will not have to say much, and it should be easy to find material 'in these days'. Will go up to London for Saturday night to see the results at the National Liberal Club, returning on Sunday morning: otherwise, they might not hear anything until Monday. Their own election is on Monday 24th; thinks they should win, but it is 'by no means certain'.

Sends love from Bessie. Their new horse seems 'satisfactory', and they will buy it.
