Scope and content

Welcombe, Stratford on Avon. - Glad Miss Barthorp has recovered her luggage; there is nothing which causes more anxiety. Julian is a great comfort to him and Caroline; he plays games in 'a rational understanding way', is easily and satisfactorily amused, and goes on 'famous walks' with Sir George. On Sunday they went to the Roman Catholic chapel, and Julian was so interested by its 'humble beauties' that yesterday they went to the parish church. Asks if Elizabeth can ask Robert about Gustave Droz's "Babolain", which is said in 'William Johnson's admirable biography' to be as good as [Austen's] "Persuasion", [Charlotte Bronte's] "Villette, and [Scott's] "The Antiquary", and the London Library has it. Glad to think of Elizabeth and Robert at home.
