[Chepstow—Tuesday, 26 July 1859]
Tuesday 26th Fortified by a good night’s rest at the Beaufort Arms we drove early to Tintern Abbey. We passed the morning there lingering over its beauties that they should grow ineffaceably into our hearts. The old man gave me some Ivy roots to take home. In the afternoon came to “the Queens” in Cheltenham and in the evening walked to see Capt. Robertson. He was away for a few days however.
