8 April 1897 — 3 Savile Row
Thursday. 8th [April 1897]. Worked in the studio all morning. Lady Gregory came to luncheon & also my sister Constance– I drove her to Cav. Sqr & took Nellie & Mary also. We went on to my sister Maria & took her out driving– Dropped the girls at ½ Moon St & Maria & I took a short drive in the Park. Home to tea. Mr Fraser & Mr Wyld came to tea. Mary dined out so she bid me goodbye—& will return home on Saturday to Lutterworth. Nellie & I dined at 7.30 & then she accompanied me to Euston Station to see me off by 8.45 train for Ireland. There I was joined by Blanche & Edward Duncannon & their daughter Olwen & we travelled together. Onie & I had a sleeping carriage together. We reached Holyhead abt 2 & went on board the splendid new steamer “Munster.” Had comfortable cabins & slept during the short crossing only 2½ hours– Arrived abt 5.30 at Dublin & found a reserved compartment in the train which took us to Kingstown where we waited 1½ hour & breakfasted– We went on to Limerick where we changed trains & got to Fiddown abt 12. It was pouring with rain. Irène, Bertie & the servants & my maid had arrived ½ hour before us having gone by Mitford & Waterford—a longer sea journey—but cheaper– We lunched at 1.30—& being very tired & knocked up I then went to bed till tea time. Sat in Blanche’s boudoir. I worked while Irène read to me Lord Robert’s memoirs. I also read aloud to Blanche. We retired early to bed.
