08Sep1865, Lord Granville Engaged, Rather Awful

HOLKER, September 8th, 1865.
—We heard of a very interesting marriage : Lord Granville to a pretty Scotch Miss Campbell, only 17 and just out. 33 years between them ! rather awful. Lou put out her wedding presents ; the upper servants have given her a pretty silver inkstand, the under ones here a charming wooden blotting-book cornered with silver.
