10Jun1864, Spouting Literature

CHISWICK, Friday, June 10th, 1864.
—The rain has only beautified and brightened the delightful weather. We sat out, spouted "In Memoriam" ; and he, to me, Canning's "Letter from Lord Russell to Lord Cavendish," which was after F.'s own heart, with its liberty and patriotism-ums. Also Carlyle. Walked in the Horticultural Gardens after luncheon. Wrote, and talked, and were very peaceful.
