[En route to Glasgow—Wednesday, 23 June 1869]
Wednesday. In company with a Russian lady & her daughter & maid (of English destraction) sailed down Loch Katrine (per steamer) & Loch Lomond & on to Glasgow. The scenery was not more beautiful than Lake Winnispisagee [sic, for Winnipesaukee], yet it was impossible to strip it of association. We were getting full of Burns having sat up until 12 o’clock the night before in a regular orgie singing his songs. Mabel is sometimes true to the title William Allingham gave her of “Miss Biglow” and J. & she carry on well together.
We are tired enough as aimless beggars who visited Glasgow.
