Scope and Content

Social news. Asks her to make enquiries for a governess for the Walkers, the last one having married a gentleman ‘that can afford to keep a carriage’. A road and public house was being built in their field. Hopes the arrangements Joseph had made with a certain lady (Mrs Forth) may be satisfactory. Not the first hint at Mrs Forth’s possible opposition to her daughter’s friendship with Joseph.
