16Oct1865, A Visit to Castle Howard

CASTLE HOWARD, October 16th, 1865.
—Came to Castle Howard of which I have heard so much since our marriage, especially from the Lascelles since Lord Carlisle's death, [FN: The 7th Earl, twice Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland.] that it saddens me to have no old memories of my own clinging to it. His life seems to have been one of those that gilds all the lives among which it is cast, as Mamma's and Aunt Lavinia's did.
