Hodgson of Clopton House: Correspondence and diary notes
From Arthur Hodgson, Montpellier, Brisbane to Frank Hodgson. He speaks of Frank's rcent acting experience and admires the photographs which were sent. Society there is below par and Mama and Emily will be glad to make their escape. He still intends to leave by the Mail from Sydney on October 9. He is pleased that part of Frank's vacation will be spent in Wales. He will keep Frank informed of their movements towards Rome. It will be full because of the convocation of Ecclesiastics taking place about Christmas. Dr Manning is to be created Cardinal. Wool has tumbled in price and his income is very reduced. He is pleased that Frank does not seem to have exceeded his allowance. Young Littleton has gone back to England via America. Young Vanneck is in Sydney.
