Scope and content

Welcombe, Stratford on Avon. - Sends Robert something from Withers; the affair [of Florence Trevelyan's will] is coming to an end, at least as regards the 'spavined post-horse of Newcastle' [Philipson the lawyer?]. Has been reading the Greek lyric poets in Bergk again; uses Robert's 'eight-paged letter of April 9, 1900' as a marker and refers to it 'constantly', as he does to Henry Jackson's letter in his Plato. Robert and Bessy must be very happy with their son. Wishes spring would come; Caroline will not get properly well until the weather changes. They are stopping at Welcombe until Thursday afternoon; enjoyed their weekend visit from Charles and Mary. Mary is so fond of Elizabeth.
