29Jun1861, Visiting Mr. Phillimore

LONDON, THE COPPICE, Saturday, June 29th, 1861.
—I came to the Coppice with Mr. Phillimore : pleasant breezy weather, which makes the trip to this nice green place very enjoyable. The 2 eldest girls have outgrown their looks, but Catherine and Lucy seem extremely intelligent and sharp, with a strong turn for quizzing, inherited ! Walter [FN: Now Lord Phillimore] a nice fellow and quite awfully clever.
