22Mar1873, The Duke of Cambridge

LONDON, Saturday, March 22nd, 1873.
—Dined at the Staffd. Northcotes' to meet the D. of Cambridge whom I have never talked to before : I liked his simple, jolly, straightforward way and famous laugh. He broke the ice and our courtly silence on arriving, by shouting out to someone at the top of his voice, "COLD to-day."
