04Jul1870, Parenthetic Dinner

LONDON, July 4th, 1870.
—Went to the House to hear F. move his amendment. Parenthetic dinner at J.G.T.'s, where were Sir Walter and Sarina James. I scolded F. for his speech which he thought fit to gallop through as if somebody was behind him with a pitchfork ; but he got the thing triumphantly thro' without a division. It was to give cumulative votes for the election of the School Boards.
