03Dec1866, I Do Hope and Hope

CHATSWORTH, December 3rd, 1866.
—With Lou and Emma to see the infant-school ; the bright little faces set me longing as usual. Poor Emma [FN: Lady Edward had had a stillborn baby.] goes to see tiny children whenever she can. She is really only just beginning to regain spring and liveliness, but I can almost envy her, for knowing what it is to be a mother ; and then she can hope more than I can do, tho' I do hope and hope. We must "wait patiently."
