21 June 1897 — Bere Cottage, Bere Regis, Dorset
Monday. 21st [June 1897]. Onie & I left Bere abt 12—& drove to Wareham & took the 1.14 train to London. We arrived there pretty punctually notwithstanding the immensely encreased traffic for the Diamond Jubilee. My servant Rawlinson met us at Waterloo station & we set off in a cab for Savile Row but we found all the town in a state of excitement & the traffic much impeded by cabs & waggons & carriages full of people who had come up to see the sight. We were nearly an hour getting across from Trafalgar Square to Regent St. Onie dropped me at Savile Row & went on to her own home in Cavendish Square. I found my sister Kate & Mary & Reggie & Monty & Henry her 4 children arrived to stay there for the public sights. The Bishop of Southwell & Lady Laura Ridding also stayed there & slept in an attic in the servants rooms. We all dined together at 8 & then I went to 40 Half Moon Street my brother Arthur’s house to sleep.
