27Nov1880, Gentle, Humble, and Considerate

LATIMER, November 27th, 1880.
—To Latimer, where I had the joy of finding Charles and Mary, [FN: Her eldest brother and his wife. Latimer was her father Lord Chesham's house.] and that nice young person Maud. [FN: Now the Hon. Mrs. Hugh Wyndham.] She has a darling face with fine dark blue eyes. . . .

The descriptions of Rosalind's [FN: Wife of the 9th Earl of Carlisle.] manners and customs at Castle Howard make one despair of her ever knowing how to be gentle, humble, or considerate; and yet she is kind and affectionate.
