27Nov1872, Playgoing Dinner-Party

LONDON, Wednesday, November 27th, 1872.
—We had a little playgoing dinner-party of Willy and Harry Gladstone and Alfred Howard, and went to see "Charles I" at the Lyceum. Irving, who played the King, was sufficiently like him and acted with sufficient dignity and pathos to make much impression on one ; and I was a little niobe at the parting with the children.
