LONDON, February 7th, 1881.
—I ought to have mentioned a smart little drum at Downing St. last Wednesday when we met the D. and Duchess of Edinburgh. Mazy said Uncle W. had been delighted with the Duchess all thro' dinner, she was so lively and intelligent. Ugly, undeniably ! but it's no wonder our long-nosed Princes should look out for pug-nosed wives.
