Rose at 7 ― diminishing objects by packing.

Letters from Daddy Hunt, Mrs. Bergmann &c.

At 10 ― to Rail. (H.R.H. P. Alfred going to Dover ― he looks a smart, but not strong youth: alive to observation ― courteous &c.) at Sandwich by 1.40, & lunch at a little Inn ― (Lord Warden) while a Fly was made ready. Boy in a fit: fits always sorrow & worry me strangely, ― from child ― recollections of poor Jane.

Set off in Fly ― passing the Campagna picture in its case on a cart half way, & finding Dickenson at Betteshanger putting up the picture=nails. Lady James came in, & we got it up before Sir Walter came in. They were delighted at it & with it. Walk with Sir W.J. ― & then talk, till dressing time.


Very pleasant. Evening ― singing.
