Scope and content

Wallington, Cambo, Morpeth. - Delighted with the picture of Julian. Enjoyed himself on a long day grouse-shooting at Ray; is 'always glad to be with those excellent neighbours' [Charles Parsons]. Mrs [Nora] Sidgwick had left when Elizabeth's letter arrived so he could not pass on her message; she seemed cheerful, and glad to be at Wallington; she likes the house she has bought near Newnham and 'regard[s] her future very cheerily'. Elizabeth must be interested in Mr [Donald] Tovey's visit; he 'brings more than most guests'. The 'public meeting in the yard was great fun' and a real success. Thanks Elizabeth for the Minimac [sic: Minimax] prospectus; Mrs Sidgwick says they used to put out a fire at Newnham 'which a foolish girl had occassioned'.
