22Mar18871, Reading at Hospital

LONDON, March 22nd, 1871.
—Read at the Ophthalmic Hospital (N.B. it is not Ophthalmic except exceptionally) and chose the Guardian accounts of the wrecked suburbs and wasted lands round Paris ; winding up with the description of "Prince and Princess Lorne's" marriage in S. George's Chapel yesterday. It brought vividly before me the tremendous contrast between our sunshine and stability, and French misery and confusion.
