25Jul1856, George Becomes Spencer

HAGLEY, July 25th, 1856.
—Oh, such a break ! Behold, Uncle Fritz makes a present to George, in honour of his Godsonship, of an estate in New Zealand !!!!!!! So my small fourth brother, aged nine, is the Honble. George William Spencer Lyttelton, landed Proprietor ! It is really most delightful, and a whole son taken off Papa's hands, and so nice his son to have land there. It will be of real value when he is old enough to go out, increases in the same every year.
