19Apr1866, The Longleys at Lambeth

LONDON, April 19th, 1866.
—I drove with old M. to Campden Hill, and to call on the Longleys [FN: The Archbishop of Canterbury was then Archbishop Longley (1862-8).] at glorious old Lambeth which I never saw before. It seemed to take one "above the smoke and stir of this dim spot," which indeed is in a stir just now.
