[Windermere—Saturday, 3 July 1869]

Saturday. Came to Stratford-on-Avon after many twists and turns which took all day—but the weather grew cooler than it had been at the lakes and the country as we approached Warwickshire exquisite in the extreme.

Mr. Flower, whose guest we were, talking Sunday of successes & failures in trade said “Yes when we hit it is history when we miss it is mystery!”

I think the saying not original with him, but it was certainly very good.
