28May1867, Very Mad Did I Feel

LONDON, May 28th, 1867.
Emma and I went together alone to Lady Vane's ball ; and very mad did I feel when I found myself dancing, vis-à-vis to Emma, with young Mr. Cecil Parker. I was to have taken poor pussy-cat [FN: Her sister Lavinia who was ill.]; but we must give up all thoughts of her coming out this year. She isn't allowed to get up at all yet.
