Scope and content

Welcombe. - Much appreciates reading about the way in which Robert reads with Julian; most important thing is that the 'higher and deeper aspects should be genuine, and within the compass of one's own honest belief', and that any creed should be 'acted on sincerely'. Says that for him, 'the Monday repetition of the Collect, Epistle, and Gospel to Vaughan were the matter of a frequent nightmare' for years. Sends a letter from 'old Hammond' [sic: a mistake for Hallam?] who lives at 'Ortygia' in Harrow, and appears to be staying at what Sir George thinks 'was not Horace's villa at Tivoli'.
