26Oct1864, Return to Chatsworth

CHATSWORTH, October 26th, 1864.
—We all left Hardwick together ; Ld. Richard alone not coming here. I needn't describe my curious feelings on coming to this stately place as my Fred's wife. It was when I was here the first time with Aunt Yaddy that the thought first struck him, and I think it was while I was here last year that I began really to like him. And now how happy I am ! Our room is an Indian-papered one, looking east up the hill. We dined in the Stag parlour, where I well remember arriving at tea-time both years in a considerable accès of stiffness and shyness.
