01Jul1868, Beautiful Garden Colours

LONDON, July 1st, 1868.
—Eastward and westward with Atie. P. With her and her girls at 5 to Holland House, the beautiful gardens very gay with all sorts of wonderful garments. This [FN: Sketches in the original.] is the kind of vagary one sees ! And 0 the dazzling hues ! Canary, copper tea-kettle, pea-green, strawberry-ice;-and salmon colour. Longfellow was there, I believe, but I didn't make him out.
