13Apr1882, Visiting Exeter

EXETER, Thursday, April 13th, 1882.
—My Fred had to go off to Dublin. We set off together at 7.40, and I came to Exeter,[FN: I.e. the Bishop's Palace.] getting here in time to sit down to dinner before 8. Little Frederic Temple, a fine bouncing fair rosy fellow, with round blue eyes: the baby [FN: Now the Rt. Rev. William Temple, Bishop of Manchester.] a very pretty dot with the gentlest expression. A great contrast to either Holker or London life.
