04Dec1866, Duchess of Manchester, Too Beautiful

CHATSWORTH, December 4th, 1866.
—I am shivering all over with a miserable scene with my maid who squabbles with all the servants. The Duke and Duchess of Manchester came. Most of us walked. Battle in the evening. [FN: The Duchess of Manchester became subsequently Duchess of Devonshire. In the next day's entry she is described as "too beautiful and winning, with the most perfect manners—-high-bred, gentle, and intelligent."]
