 Item — Box: 1, Folder: 20
Call Number: MSS 22

Scope and Contents

Cooke writes that he would like Redgrave to visit. He suggests Redgrave will need a break from Town and not to worry about the "late season" as the "scene" surrounding the house is "just as charming in winter as in summer." Cooke writes of plants and trees on the land and states that "our great work is finished & most successfully viz the Deep well & pumping [...]." Cooke states that the "house is almost finished." Cooke hopes to go to Coombe with Veitch and offers to meet Redgrave on the return trip. Cooke adds a post-script: "I am getting to be a farmer no mistake."
