24Jun1870, Return to Chiswick

LONDON, June 24th, 1870.
—I drove with Lou to poor, silent, altered Chiswick. The Prince of Wales has it for the present, and is going to give a big breakfast there to-morrow ; but all was deserted to-day. His children come and play here constantly ; we saw their little brooms, spades, etc. Visited schools. Also at Chiswick I went to the dear rooms where we spent our first happy days together, and recalled that golden time.
