05Dec1863, Viewing Hardwicke

CHATSWORTH, Saturday, December 5th, 1863.
—Stormy soft wind, with a good deal of small rain, and a beautiful sunset. Such a pleasant day ; Papa and I drove with the Duke and Ly. Louisa to Hardwicke where we spent 2 hours going over the wonderful old house : I wished for Tallee with her antiquarian tastes, and I do wish indeed for a head that would remember all the curious things. The drive there and back very enjoyable, in spite of boisterous wind and wet : Ly. L. and I capped verses coming home. Dinner pleasant, my neighbours being Lord Frederic and Mr. Ashby who are both nice.
