“Brooks’s, Nov. 24th.

“. . . Yesterday at the Hollands we had Lord Grey and Lord J. Russell, Charles Fox and Lady Mary, Henry and his little bride,‡ Sidney Smith, John Ponsonby (Duncannon’s eldest son)§ and Ellice the elder. Lady Holland introduced me to Henry’s wife in a very pretty manner as one of Henry’s oldest and kindest friends. The said Lady Augusta I consider as decidedly under three feet in height—the very nicest little doll or plaything I ever saw. She is a most lively little thing apparently, very pretty, and I dare say up to anything, as all Coventrys are, or at least have been. . . . I can scarcely believe the story of Lady Jersey and Palmerston, tho’ it was very current that, when Lady Cowper went abroad, Palmerston transferred his allegiance to Lady Jersey.”¶
