Rose at 7. ― & ― breakfast included, wrote till 10, to C.F.
Went to church, ― & saw Jacob Omnium the very first man, ― he is here for the winter. Lady Vaux & others ― Service a bore ― foolish sermon, & collection afterwards.
Came home, & called then on the Strangfords’ ― but found them all packed & going off: ― sate with them till the ‘Bus’ came & went to the Gare ― & saw them off. Really the Beaufort is a wonderful little woman. ―― Returned, ― & walked & dawdled & dressed till 5 ― or 5.30. Then, dined at the Mediteranee [sic], sitting next Mrs. Saltmarshe, & opposite Lord & Lady Carbery, wh. he is deaf & dumb. Not an unpleasant evening. Home before 8, ― & found G. reading: but I want to make his room more comfortable if I can.
