Monday 24th August 1857

Mother drove us part of the way to Ryde in the donkey cart, we went for a walk on the Esplanade. After dinner we went in the field, the dancing on the Green was very pretty.

After tea, Mrs  Dennis, Mr. G. C and a few more friends went to the theatre, but I did not like the performances at all. We had a very pleasant walk home but I dont think its worth while to tell the time when we arrived at Wootton Villa, I think we will pass it by.
