Scope and content

Hotel Londra, La Cava [de' Tirreni]. - He and Caroline have been visiting all of Robert's 'favourite haunts', but the weather has been very bad and cold. Sir George had Robert's old room on the terrace from the second night, Madame Palumba [sic: Palumbo] made them very comfortable, and the cuisine was 'above criticism' though unfortunately the young cook is soon joining the army. They went twice to Cembrone [sic: the Villa Cimbrone] and were caught in a storm both times; the only good walk they had was up the valley through the chestnut woods. However, they very much liked Ravello. They called on Mrs Reid, who was very kind. When at La Cava today they drove up to Corpo di Cava, and again were unlucky with the weather, so did not take a walk but saw the abbey, church and town, and the inn where Robert is 'greatly considered'. They go on to Rome tomorrow, and at least will be 'warm inside St. Peter's'. Sends love to Elizabeth, and best regards to their host and hostess [the Grandmonts].
