“Tower, 19th.

“. . . Lady Sefton, her three eldest daughters, Frances* and myself went after dinner last night to Lady Grey’s weekly. . . . Our Vaux was there with his daughter. I had some very good laughing with him, and he was in his accustomed overflowing glee. We had some very pretty amusement with Viscount Melbourne, who is very agreeable. . . . Grey was very loud to me in praise of Edward Stanley,† who, by common consent, has made two excellent speeches. He is quite ready for battle with O’Connell, and the greatest confidence is entertained that Edward will be too much for him.”
