Eliza [Tabor] to her husband

Scope and Content

From Malvern to her husband en route to India. Glad he has had an extra day in Milan with Alethea. Remembers their own visit there, but prefers Venice, Florence and Verona. Thinking of becoming a member of St.George's Company, who pledge themselves to simplicity and sincerity of life, and to bring up children independent of luxuries; members also promise to work in some way with their hands. Birds John brought home, including a peacock, have been stuffed and some skins dressed, to be used on walls and as rugs. Working steadily at book, first volume already copied.
