[Dogmore End—Wednesday, 30 May 1860]

Wednesday the 30th really came before we were aware. During the morning we took a woodland walk and Mr Reade showed us huge beds of blue wild-flowers, far bluer and more plentiful than any I had seen elsewhere. We returned home laden with good wishes and hawthorne blossoms. We came in just in season to dress for dinner at Mrs Hall’s where we met Hawthorne, the Chambers of Edinburgh, Mrs Bushnell (Catherine Hayes), Miss Jewsbury and the dear Bennochs.
