08Dec1863, A Visit from Ld. Frederic

HAWARDEN, Tuesday, December 8th, 1863.
—Same soft weather, turning to rain after luncheon. It was delicious walking to early church in the spring-like mildness. Breakfasted at the Rectory. Drove in the rain for an hour with Mrs. and Emily Mildmay and Agnes. Ld. Frederic came. Pleasant evening of whist. Mr. Tollemache,[FN: This, I think, must be Mr. Lionel Tollemache, author of "Talks with Mr. Gladstone," and other works.] though nearly blind and with a terrific stutter, is clever and can be agreeable.
