Alix von Cotta to Nelly

Scope and Content

Cotta writing from Newnham. Should have written to congratulate her before but, as the results were so much a matter of course it seemed superfluous. Uncertain how long Miss Clough will allow her to stay up and where she goes after that; will write when she gets to London. Rev. Mr Holand's a 'Great humbug'. Describes a delightful farewell party on the river given by Miss Prideaux. At a tea party Miss Gladstone said she had met Mr. Balfour who had enquired about Miss Lawrence's future implying that he was ready to give any advice needed.
