14May1862, One Was Amused

LONDON, Wednesday, May 14th, 1862.
—N.E. wind. Got up abt 10 ; had a pleasant ride with Agnes and Uncle Henry at 12 1/2, when Rotten Row is at its fullest : we shot many acquaintance. Dull concert at Ly. Harrington's, I mean the music was dull : one was amused somehow, and Meriel and Mrs. Talbot were there, tho' not within speaking distance. Col. Feilding (the hare) shook hands with me: his brother, the other Col., has just married Ly. L. Thynne. Party at the Dss. of Northumberland ; the Japanese ambassadors, dreadful monsters, came.
