Alix von Cotta to Nelly

Scope and Content

Cotta writing from Brunkensen. Gives her impressions of Cheltenham (all on a very grand scale, but thinks the limits of size have been overstepped); enjoyed her visit to Cambridge, saw Mrs Sidgwick twice. Finally reached Cronberg where she had luncheon with the Empress who asked immediately about Cheltenham though Alix emphasised the superior attractions of Roedean. The next day she came in for the grand historic fete in commemoration of a 500 year old foundation of the Cronberg shooting club.
