[Windermere—Sunday, 27 June 1869]

Sunday 25 [sic]. We are looking out on the lake and the place is a kind of Paradise. The room is heavy with honeysuckle & wild roses (both wild) which we have gathered ourselves.

Sunday. Walked to Ambleside in the morning, drove to Grasmere in the afternoon. Jamie and I walked all over Wordsworth’s place and Rydal Mount where he loved to wander. Also to his grave, a place touching from its appropriate loveliness.
