Went to flower show in Regent Park; met Evelyn Wimbush and Mr. Marston at the Sharp's; people at the grand soiree at the Royal Academy astounded her; 8th: had lunch at the Clifford's house; 9th: claims she cannot get Eugene's book reviewed, as "London literary society is merely a thing shown to me through a grating"; thinks her "sworn admirers" are avoiding her; 10th: went to a dismal party at Pultney; visited the Gosses, Mr. Gosse being "the only nice man I have met in this literary set."
