Fine: directly after breakfast went to Waterloo Station, where were Caroline Jones & two of her daughters, who went back when C. & I went to Leatherhead ― by 11.10 train.

(When last in England Mrs. Chalmers had called on her! ― It seems my cousing [sic] Emily C. is dead: also George C. ||Frederick C. has married Miss Marsh ― sister of Miss Marsh the well-known.) ― At Ellens ― after a walk across the fields ― very pleasant ― it was sad enough. Yet that most amiable Caroline sees only the bright side of all, & is an A. no. 1 Christian. She & I returned at 5.25, & I put her into an Omnibus at the Strand.

Walked home: supper.
