Scope and content

Welcombe, Stratford on Avon. - Glad to have 'lived to have heard about the "Robin Hood Wind"'; would be happy to have such bright cold weather as they have today every day of his life, but knows this would be hard for people 'less well off for fuel, and not favourable for vegetation'. Much 'interested in Julian's exhibiting, dear little artist'; is sure he has an 'aptitude'. Aunt Annie [Philips] told them about meeting Bessie while 'marketing'. Feels he is more of a 'good Liberal' than most country-gentlemen, since he is 'most spontaneously and unfeignedly delighted' by farmers being allowed to kill pheasants, in and out of season. Wonders how Mr [Wilfrid] Gibson will find lecturing in America: 'the special art of America, like the drama in Greece'. An American lecture was here last night, 'not eloquent, but it was absolutely extempore, and full of facts and information'.
