12May1868, The Girls Not Presented

LONDON, May 12th, 1868.
—I went early to the Nat. school. The girls and I spent most of the rest of the day struggling thro' the Drawing-room, which took us 4 hours. The Queen hardly stayed an hour, so we had the great blow of the girls not being presented to her. M., the Gladstones, and everybody else in the world, was there : Ly. Dudley, Ly. Craven, Ly. Bath, the greatest beauties.
