Scope and Contents

Cooke thanks Redgrave and his wife for their hospitality in looking after Conrad. Cooke writes that Conrad "enjoyed his little taste of the country immensely and he returned much better for the change." Cooke remarks upon the "pleasant improvements" in the weather and inquires about the harvest. Cooke had a "agreeable" weekend with his friend "Jas[?] Salter," "Sailing & dredging" in Poole and Swanage. Cooke writes that he then traveled to the Isle of Wight to meet up with a fellow traveler to begin a "proposed journey along the coasts of Portugal & Spain." He states, "we start about the 26th or 27th." Cook inquires about the "School at Dresden" as he would like George to "go for 6 months again" to improve his German. He writes that Ansdell "is going to take his two sons there."
