23Oct1865, A Visit to Lord Houghton's

FRYSTON, October 23rd, 1865.
—We left beautiful Castle Howard, and came here, to Lord Houghton's, in time for luncheon. Drove with Ly. H. afterwards : the country flat, but with one pleasant wide view. I made great friends of the 3 children, Anicia, Florence, and Robin [FN: Now Marquess of Crewe.]. Three nice old moths are here, aunts of Lord H. The Queen has appointed Ld. Russell to form a ministry, to the violent rage of the Times. Letters : to and from Papa and Lou.
