Scope and content

Welcombe, Stratford on Avon. - Appreciates Robert's letter very much; its analysis of the article in the "Daily News" [about Sir George's "American Revolution", see 12/189] 'went very much home': the writer was 'thinking of himself, and not of the book' since it is obvious that Sir George is most grateful to Fox for having 'suffered for, and almost invented, the democratic idea'. Sends some other articles; the Tory reviews are 'particularly jolly and friendly', and 'seem to like [Sir George] better for being a good party-man'. Discussion of minor misprints. Glad to have 'continuous good accounts of Elizabeth'; 'used to think a sentence in Jane Austen's "The Watsons," - about a suburban villa and a front drive - thoroughly characteristic of her'.
