Scope and content

Wallington, Cambo, Northumberland. - Robert's account of the 'subsidiary hunt' curious; comments on 'what tenacity there is in certain families', with Macaulay's grand-nephew [Robert], Wordsworth's grand-nephew, and he supposes the great grandson of Erasmus Darwin 'chasing each other about the lakes', while this Sunday Lord Coleridge, the poet's great-grand-nephew is staying at Wallington. He is coming to try the 'great murder case' of the paymaster shot on the train between Stannington and Morpeth' [John Nisbet]. Was pleased by Mary's excellent account of Julian; Robert will be glad to see him 'well and bonny'; sends love to Elizabeth, whose interesting letter to Caroline he has just seen. Notes in a postscript that he has just finished the fifth of [Cicero's] Second "Verrines", a 'wonderful oration'.
