WREST, July 25th, 1871.
—To Wrest this evening ; find Lady Cowper, Florence, and Annabel ; Florence engaged to Auberon Herbert (rather she than I !) ; a very nice brother of said Auberon, Alan, who was in practice as physician in Paris and staid there thro' the siege ; Mr. Dicky Doyle ; Lord Ralph Kerr ; the Cowper-Temples ; Mr. Newton of the British Museum ; Mr. W. Harcourt, as disagreeable and sardonic as usual.
