 Item — Box: 1, Folder: 22
Call Number: MSS 15, Series III

Scope and Contents

Harriet writes about the date of her upcoming return home, saying that Leslie may either come up and join them for a night or that she can get the children home herself. She wishes, with underlining for emphasis, "to be with you alone at Hampton Court..." She goes on to discuss hiring a new maid and remarks that Miss Moore (a local acquaintance) has "read some of 'the Life,' presumably one of the autobiographical or biographical projects on which Leslie was working. Harriet closes with a fanciful discussion of the pleasures and possible excesses of living in the country.
