[London—Monday, 28 May 1860]

Monday 28th Past at Windsor. The Crowes and Miss Whitwell accompanied and Mr Daville (whom we met at Mr Ward’s) obtained entrance for us.

Dined at Mrs Routledge’s. Except for the Dallas’s this would have been stupid enough but they were a strong exception. Mr Staunton the chess-player was there and Dalziel the engraver. They were both very agreeable but the gentlemen stayed down stairs so long they gave us ample time to be stupid up stairs. Mrs Dallas read to me in an under tone bits from S. & D’s new edition of Shakspeare when she had an opportunity. It was truly delightful to have his genius before us to bite upon.
