05Jun1873, This Noble Place

HATFIELD, Thursday, June 5th, 1873.
—Parted with F. on the railway ; he going to Kirby Lonsdale for more speechifying; I (chaperoned by a clever little Cambridge oddity named Stuart [FN: Afterwards Professor Stuart, M.P.]as far as Hitchin) came to this noble place. Find host and hostess, 2 Miss Aldersons and Mrs. Cocks, Ld. Edmund Fitzmaurice, Uncle Dick, Mr. Balfour, and Richmond père [FN: George Richmond, the artist.] : very pleasant.
