Eliza [Tabor] to her husband

Scope and Content

From Malvern to India. Relieved to receive £30 just when she needed money. Children scandalised when he mentioned 'Gallivanting about and rolling down the hills'on his birthday, which came on a Sunday. Mary Catherine saw Mr Gregory Smith and mentioned to him how much John would like to work in the neighbourhood when he came home, and Mr Gregory Smith was interested and said he would like to work with him. John has mentioned wish for 'a good fling'at theatres, concerts etc. when he comes home; she agrees but would not wish to join him and would like the price of tickets to put aside for trip to Switzerland later, perhaps even India. No wish for amusements now.
