Scope and content

Wallington, Cambo, Morpeth. - Robert's address 'reads delightfully'; will be glad to see the result of his 'villegiatura'. George Russell and the Harrow masters have found a manuscript of Sir George's Juvenal parodies from 1856, and they are to be printed in the "Harrovian"; will send them to Robert. He had the 'knack of thinking in lyric' then, which he lost completely in ten years; also notable to see how 'outspoken' his attack on the 'cricket clique' was in the second half which is not to be reprinted, and that it was generally popular and brought him nothing but 'adhesion and approbation', at least 'on the surface'. They have heard from Bessie, who seems 'happily settled' at Littlehampton. Likes Robert's 'metal tray' [a gift from his travels?] which will stay at Welcombe.
