Scope and content

Confesses that when she was unwed she 'used to think Arthur's wife would be such a nice person, and do things nobody else could do', but now she realises the truth, it is a comfort to her 'to think another is coming into the family' [i.e., that Henry is soon to be married]. Declares that the marriage 'will make everybody so happy and Mother and Minnie.' Expresses her happiness at the news. Writes that she hopes that Henry's intended bride is a Girton girl, but crosses the line out.
