[London—Monday, 4 June 1860]

Monday 4th Left London at eleven o’clk. Mrs Effingham seemed really sorry and Eliza the maid did not hesitate to say “I do hope ma’am we shall have anybody ’alf so pleasant ma’am w’en you are gone.” Kind Mr Jones came in to say a few last words & bid us good-bye. There never was a better kinder friend than he.

The day grew chilly and damp towards noon. East wind blowing and raining from time to time. We found ourselves late for Newstead so pushed on through Matlock and Rowsley to Chatsworth for the first night. The park was exquisite in the light of sun-set which came out warm upon the soft grass and delicious trees.
