01Oct1863, Guizot's Charles I

HAGLEY, Thursday, October 1st, 1863.
—I translated and finished Guizot's " Charles I," finding myself as much moved at the account of the King's death as I was on reading it in Clarendon 9 or 10 years ago, although I do now see, very unwillingly, the faults of the Royal martyr.
