Scope and content

8, Grosvenor Crescent, S.W. - Pleased with all Bob tells him [about Cambridge]; happy to pay for the valuation of his rooms; advises him to borrow from Charles if he wants money. Much impressed by his succeeding to Bristed's rooms. He and Caroline are about to start for Lucerne, from where they will go to Milan and Pisa. Will enjoy being in Rome with Bob someday very much. Is reading [Robert] Burn's "Rome", which is a great work; asks whether Burn is still alive; he was always known as 'Bobby Burn' in Sir George's day.
