07Jun1864, Our Wedding Day

CHISWICK, Tuesday, June 7th, 1864.
—Our wedding day. I cannot write about it. I can only look backwards with loving regret, and forward with bright but trembling hope. We were married in Westminster Abbey, by Uncle Billy, and came here [FN: The Duke of Devonshire's house at Chiswick in which both Fox and Canning died. It is now the property of the Municipality.] about 4 o'clock, into peaceful summer loveliness and the singing of birds.
