21Apr1864, We Are Engaged

LONDON, Thursday, April 21st, 1864.
—A bright, serene day of inward and outward sunshine. We are engaged, and my doubts and fears have been all absorbed in the wonderful happiness and peace. "Full measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, doth He give into my bosom." I have got my 1st present : he brought it me this afternoon : a locket with diamonds and pearls, to have his hair in it. He dined here : as did my old Meriel. . . . I wrote to all my darling boys : even to my little fellows at Hagley.
