“Brooks’s, May 29th (King Charles’s Restoration
and Minister Charles’s aussi).

“I dined yesterday at Stanley’s, with Johnny Russell by his side, and it was all very well. . . . All the offices were to be filled to-day. Think of young Cole* Secretary of State for the Colonies! Abercromby vice Stanley! Oh dear, oh dear! . . . I continue to dine out daily according to custom. We had a great day on Sunday at ‘dear Eddard’s,’ with our Chancellor in the character of lover to Mrs. Petre, tho’ Lady Grey tells me this lover is dead-beat by Palmerston. Was there ever? I dine with Fergy to-day to meet the Cokes and Abercromby, but not as Secretary of State for the Colonies, for all is settled, and no mention of young Cole. Auckland first Lord of the Admiralty!!! Was there ever? Spring Rice the Colonies! Ld. Carlisle Privy Seal; Mulgrave, it is probable, the Post Office, Ellice in the Cabinet with his present office. I am very glad of this last arrangement, because he is the most courageous bottle-holder Lord Grey could have. I dine to-morrow

* The Right Hon. James Abercromby.

Sefton’s with Brougham only; next day at Praise-God Barebones Fitzwilliam’s.”
