05Jun1866, Rather Bored at the Ball

LONDON, June 5th, 1866.
—We dined cosily in, Stratton St., going afterwards with Aunt Coquitty to hear Mr. Brookfield read "Hamlet," which he did very well, especially the comedy parts. Queen's Ball, where we were rather bored ; Ld. Sefton was there with his bride-elect, and Ld. Brecknock with his ; neither very pretty, if I was right in shooting them. Princess of Wales looked lovely, though thin ; the Prince's looks are improved by an advancing yellow beard.
