Scope and content

Wallington, Cambo, Morpeth. - Enjoyed reading Robert's letter about the dinner [the Apostles' dinner: see 46/303]; the society now is 'certainly a very distinguished body'. Their journey was long here but successful; Caroline is very tired but not really any worse. Comments on the 'horrors about Etna' [a destructive eruption of the volcano]. Thanks in a postscript for 'Pollard's discourse [Alfred Pollard's pamphlet The Foundations of Shakespeare's Text, sent by Robert],'; he talks great sense on a subject 'on which many people write ineffable nonsense'.
