Scope and Content

From Malvern to India. Shakespeare reading very successful. Repeats admiration of Carlyle and dislike of Froude, a 'Gallio and a scoffer'. Lilian still working hard but shows no originality; Mabel has more interesting mind but 'really too leisurely'. Proud that clothes for the four of them, without counting boots and shoes, came to less than £12 for the year, yet 'we always look like gentlepeople'.
