18Apr1866, Whigs and Tories Inter-marry?

LONDON, April 18th, 1866.
—We had luncheon at Devinshire House where Ld. Richard had turned up. Who should come to luncheon but Ld. Grosvenor [FN: Afterwards the 1st Duke of Westminster. He was active at this time among the Whigs who were opposing the Government Reform Bill.] ? He told us his boy Belgrave [?] (14 or 15 years old) asked him, "Do Whigs and Tories ever inter-marry?"
