Scope and Content

Written from Edensor, Derbyshire. Has come there for a fortnight to complete the holiday which she was enabled to have through the kindness of friends [see letter of 7 Jul from JB to Mr Wilson]; had a nice time in Rothbury and felt better for it; then a fortnight at home doing what work she was able to write which was still a difficulty though she can dictate. They are a party of three with Arthur Butler and Stuart. Arthur had put his pony carriage at her disposal.
