Scope and content

Welcombe, Stratford on Avon. - Is returning 'the Report' [from Julian's school?] in 'an envelope worthy of it'; it has been studied with 'much interest, sympathy and satisfaction' by all three of them [Sir George, Caroline, and Anna Philips], and they appreciated Elizabeth's letter. He has not been very well, and needed comforting as he cannot afford to be ill with Caroline 'as she is'; he is better now but still 'rather pulled down'. Glad Elizabeth likes the aerial landscape, and the Lady Desborough letter; she was an 'exquisitely beautiful child' when they used to see her often at her uncle Henry Cowper's house.
