Agnes had a tumble at dinner, it caused much amusement, feel so very very tired & homesick, they are all so kind to me. Oh! dear when will I be able to go home again. We start for London tomorrow.

Monday 9th. Started for our journey end this morning, we dropped darling Mary at Rugby & gave her in charge to her uncle, who was waiting for her. I am very sorry she has gone. but I hope soon to see the dear girls. The English trains are not so comfortable as those in the United States. These are such nasty stuffy things.

Halkin street 9 P.M. Arrived at Euston Station at 6 P.M. Mrs. Jane Bushby came to meet us, received a warm welcome. Jane & Annie are such dear good sweet creatures I love them so. They are kind to Harry & me.

Wednesday 11th. We out shopping this morning, invested in a pair of boots.
