07Jul1865, A Good Drawing in Punch

LONDON, July 7th, 1865.
Cavendish dined, to my great satisfaction ; Auntie P. and Mary came in afterwards. There has been an exceedingly good drawing in Punch of "Mamma Russell and Mamma Gladstone" (the statesmen, in bonnets) teaching their respective babies to walk, alluding to Lord Amberley and Willy standing for Leeds and Chester.
