15Mar1873, Uncle W. Gives an Ivory Madonna

CLIVEDEN, Saturday, March 15th, 1873.
—Raw and ungenial. Abbey. We came to Cliveden [FN: Then the Duke of Westminster's house.], with the W. E. G.'s (he walking to Paddington), Mazy, the Dss. of Argyll, and Mr. Leveson. Uncle W. has given me a little ivory Madonna he picked up on his way to the station, in a shop ! I told him it was highly compromising and Ultramontane.
