14Sep1863, My First Waiting Ends

HAGLEY, Monday, September 14th, 1863.
—And so it is over ! I almost feel as if I had spent a fortnight here. It is peaceful and pleasant indeed to think I have gone through my first waiting and really without a rub. The Queen was to go to Balmoral this evening, but we were allowed to go early. Got home in time for dinner. We did certainly make a noise ! and the evening was a funny contrast to my last four.
