“. . . On Monday, after dining at Sefton’s, I went to Lady Jersey’s. Her parties are not nearly so numerous as they used to be, and of course they are
so much the worse, because they were never too crowded. . . . While I was talking to Ly. Jersey,
Humbug Leopold interrupted us, so she sent me a message by her ‘brother Brougham’ to come to her next Monday, and stay and be one of the supper click, which always terminates these evenings. . . . I suppose you know Ly. Elizabeth Conyngham’s marriage with Lord Burford* is off. He became so unmannerly and cross that the lady sent him a letter of dismissal last Saturday. . . . Here is the town in a mutiny at the King giving Lord Salisbury’s blue ribbon to Lord Bath, quite unknown to any of the Ministers. I am delighted, because Lord Bath is the man who said that if he had seen Bergami and the late Queen in bed together it would not alter his vote against the Bill that was to crush her.”
