01Jun1868, Eddie and Emma's Little Boy

HAGLEY, June 1st, 1868.
—Thank God, dear Emma's troubles are all over, and a fine little boy [FN: The present Duke of Devonshire] was born yesterday at 9 o'clock. It is nice to have this to enter in the same Vol. of journal which has the account of the sad disappointment 2 years ago. Now she has everything in the world. I feel rather heart-pinched in the lessening of our own hopes ; but it is the only thing wanting to us, and one ought to be full of thankfulness.
