Wallington, Cambo, Morpeth. - Much appreciates Elizabeth's present, which is also admired by Aunt Annie [Philiips], 'such a specialist in gifts'. Originally enclosing a 'beautiful letter [from George: see 46/280] about [Henry] Jackson's funeral' for her and Bob to see; encourages her to think of the corner in the cemetery where Jebb and Jackson are buried, men who let their fame rest on their scholarship and did not 'court a pseudo reputation by trifling with sensational and paradoxical matters'. They are enjoying the visits of Aunt Anna and Audrey Trevelyan, 'a fine creature'.
