Parte de Papers of Richard Monckton Milnes, Lord Houghton

embossed notepaper for Dunrobin Castle, Sutherland. - Lord Chesham looked after Amy well; two other young ladies had to sleep in their ball dresses in the gentlemen's dressing room at the hotel as their maid had hidden their room keys too well; visited Bishops; [Edens?] hope to be of assistance to Annabella Milnes; row in the train over reserved carriage for Dunrobin; encountered Miss [Catherine M.] Marsh there - Houghton moved to tears by her account of death of a wild man he knew as a boy, or perhaps it was gout. Lady John Scott is now singing and Lord Delamere talking to Miss Marsh like Hedley Vicars; the chief financial adviser of the Khedive, a young French officer 'late at Metz', and the engineer Sir Henry (?) Jones are also here; discusses other guests.

Contains note by Hon. Amicia Milnes.

11 Chichester Terrace, Brighton. - Cannot resist sending Mrs Blackburne a note, as well as one to Mr Milnes 'for my old Crewe feelings do most naturally seek for a vent'; is very glad of Anabel's safety, '& one cannot help glancing at the strong presumption that to Crewe is born an heir in the line we love! May the Boy live & prosper'.

25 Rue Olivier. - Godfrey Bland died this morning around eleven, 'almost without a struggle'. The scene was 'most painful... his poor wife adored him - & all his servants loved him so much'. They discussed his affairs before his death: Godfrey made a will a year ago before the marriage, leaving all to his wife except two hundred pounds to George and the same to Frederick, and something to his servants; he intended to alter it but had no strength left, and has told his wife he trusts her to give George twenty five thousand francs instead of five thousand. She will have a residue of about six or seven hundred a year, which will leave her very comfortable.
Godfrey will be buried as he wished at Père Lachaise, probably on Friday.

Will do all he can to help the 'poor widow'; such scenes as the ones this morning, '& the one at Bawtry - (how is A[nnabel?] poor little girl) - painful tho' they are - tend to make one a wiser and better man'
