Will travel from England to Belgium on the 23rd with Mrs. Smillie and go from there to Siena; rowed on the Avon with the Jeffersons; visited Warwick Castle, "the mose Faery Queen sort of place I have ever seen"; a Miss Nussey, "Charlotte Bronte's only surviving friend," is criticising Mary Robinson's work on Charlotte Bronte; Mary wrote prologue to "The New Arcadia," but expects no good reviews.
