[Hanover—Saturday, 19 September 1874]

Left Sepr 19. Saturday. Miss Sanborn accompanied us as far as Boscawen where the Webster family still keep a beautiful estate. She was very sprightly and entertaining without coruscation or fatigue. We kept on till late afternoon to Greenland hoping to go from there to Rye—no vehicle, raining hard, happily did not actually get off the train but went to Portsmouth, took a cup of tea and drove in the early evening and soft mist to Rye. We thought it might be damp or cold; but we found ourselves at mother’s door before nine in perfect condition.
