26Oct1863, Mrs. Gladstone in Mama's Room

HAGLEY, Monday, October 26th, 1863.
—Raw yellow fog. Ld. George and Ric. Quin, Atie. P. and Agnes, Uncles Stephen and Henry and the 5 boys came. I stayed in to get rid of the end of my cold. Ld. George [FN: Lord George Quin married Lady Georgiana Spencer, sister of Sarah, Lady Lyttelton.] has never been here since before Meriel's birth.

Atie. Pussy is in the dear room, never used till now since the night when our darling [FN: Lady Frederick's mother, Lady Lyttelton.] rested there in her arms and then passed to the blessed repose of the Everlasting Arms.
