[London—Thursday, 16 June 1859]

Thursday June 16th Went with an enormous crowd to Ascot. The Queen arrived in state from Windsor at ½ past 1 o’clock. We stood very near her. It was a lovely sight. Returned to town with our American friends at 4 o’clk—dined. I was alone when the door flew open and Parker & Fairbanks came in. Oh! what a merry tea we had. Dear Mr Bennoch the soul of goodness came in the morning to give us invitations every where. Leigh Hunt whom I want to see as much as anybody invites us to supper. All the world of friends are as kind as they can be. All this means London.
