[Stratford-on-Avon—Tuesday, 6 July 1869]

Tuesday 6th Saw every thing in the town almost connected with Shakespeare until my back felt as if everything he had ever beheld in his mortal career had been heaped upon it until it was like to break. Went into an old garden among the rest which was doubtless a garden in his time belonging to a Mr. Halliday an antiquarian; it was shut in like a convent close and was most beautiful as well as venerable with the largest Wisteria I ever saw about 20 years old.
