28Oct1872, Building Eaton Hall

HAWARDEN, SS. Simon and Jude, Monday October 28th, 1872.
—F. and I rode to Eaton [FN: The Duke of Westminster was then building Eaton Hall.] to see the Westminsters who took us all over the house and grounds, still in chaos of scaffolding, levelling, building, and pulling down, but promising to be most successful, only on too enormous a scale, to my thinking.
