Leamington   1847, February 26

Went out in a vis-à-vis in the afternoon. First called on Mrs. Desvoeux. Not at home. Then did a good deal of shopping getting various commissions sent to us. Saw Lady Guernsey’s carriage in the Parade & found her in a toy shop & had a long conversation with her while Grandmama did some shopping next door. Then came home.

Grandmama out all the morning doing business. Sent off a huge box to Louisa Moncreiff. At ½ past one we started on our journey home. Met no one we knew on the railroad. Reached home about 7 o’clock.

Sunday. The Queen’s letter for the Itrish read in church today. They collected in church a little more than £ 12 which I think very good for this little village. Considering neither Papa nor Mr. Feilden put in then. The poor Irish cannot have too much just now.
