Saturday, 26 December 1863

Very mild ― but mizzly at times, & dark.

Rose at 7.30 & breakfasted with Mr. Reilly at 8, walking with him to Rail. Home by 9.30. Letters all receipts of Book. Wrote 6 or 7 notes & arranged some packing, & at 12.45 ― came again to Waterloo, ― Barnes, & Clarence by 2. Lunch. Sitting with Mrs. Decie, & walking about grounds, & planting Poultry till 5. Sitting windows, with the children & the rest. ― Dinner at 7.30.


A something wonderfully pleasant party. Lady Frere is delightful.

Bed at 11.
