14 April 1897 — Bessborough, Fiddown, County Kilkenny
Wednesday. 14th [April 1897]. Very cold & showery day. Copied picture in the morning while Irène read aloud to me– Onie comes into my bed every morning soon after 7 to read to me while I embroider. After lunch Blanche drove me in the little poney trap. We went to Castle Tybroughney near here where a Mrs Fitzgerald lives in a modern house built onto the old tower. We had not the courage to mount to the top of it only to see the view. We returned to Bessboro’ on foot—having once to take shelter under a hedge against a sharp shower of hail. At 6.45 I walked to church with Blanche to service at 7. Cold but fine moonlit night. Patience in eveng & music.
