Abstract:

1st page only, sending him a Radical paper sent her by Edward Paget, who had thought her "particularly dull" when he tried to make her understand what a Radical is: will her father please send her the most Conservative paper he knows? They are now a very large party and are writing a newspaper which will inform her father about their activities. Every evening they have dancing, and she is trying to teach Leugtenant Gile and Joe Parker how to waltz, with Mr. Gile, like everybody else, laughing "the whole time at my speaking" [her Scottish accent?]. Letter breaks off in midst of references to Charles Parker (Spank) and John Parker (Mr. Winkle). [She has been visiting the Pagets at Sutton and is now in Little comberton with the Parkers before returning to school in Stratford].
