17Mar1865, Lady Manageress Pounces on Countess Spencer

LONDON, March 17th, 1865.
—I went to London House, with a brigade of Associated Ladies. Charlotte Spencer came for the first time and was immediately pounced upon by the P.M.W. Lady Manageress to be a Supplemental Lady. Miss Twining, who has the workhouseums, shut herself up with Auntie P. and others, and burst forth into schemes for improving pauper sick arrangements. We had a delightful rebound of our Curate-hamper : viz. of the wine and arrowroot.
