03Aug1867, A Cockney Expedition

LONDON, August 3rd, 1867.
—We failed to get the Devonshire House carriage, and found ourselves at 5 with nothing to do with our holyday. What should Fred hit upon but a delightful cockney expedition by boat to Greenwich ! where we kicked our heels in the park and toodled about very pleasantly, and wound up with a fish dinner, my intense enjoyment of which I am quite ashamed of !
