Wednesday, 29 June 1864

Rose before 6 ― & penned till 8. ―& again till 1 ―― when Sir Walter & Lady James came.

At 4 ― made calls ― Lady Waterford, Lady Grey ― Mr. Dodson, Lady Duncraile, & Mrs. Percy ― but it came on, as last night ― hard rain.

The Trunk has got to Moorgate ― but Thomas had not enough tin to pay for it, so it has not yet been sent.

Just as I was dressing to dine ― lo!

The Trunk came!! ― untouched & just as it was inside & out!!!!!! A mystery & a pleasure.


Company intelligent & jovial. Room hot & detestable. Singing ―

& came away at 11.30. Home by 12[.]
