30Nov1863, A Weary Evening

WITLEY, Monday, November 30th, 1863.
—I joined Papa at the station at 4 and came here with him. Find here Ld. Dudley, Mrs. Ward, her two very pretty daughters, Major Anson, and other gentlemen. A weary evening consisting of an hr and ¼'s waiting, then a long-drawn-out silent dinner, then sitting up till nearly 12½ , playing at a feeble sort of bowls! Our long drive from Kidderm St. was the pleasantest part, Papa and I having much to talk about.
