Scope and content

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.
