19Sep1865, Lou's Trousseau Arrives

HOLKER, September 19th, 1865.
—Folk drove, couples coupled. We had a delightful series of scampers on a fine long strip of sand near Park Head : Kinataloon gave Lou's horse a slight kick, but no harm came of it. Palgrave and dear Paradise Lost. . . .
Lou's trousseau has arrived, and causes great excitement : she showed off to us a specially charming plush gown, in colour very like a mouse-coloured Scotch bullock. It is curious how quietly and humdrummily we manage to slip on from day to day.
