Marshall’s, about sixteen years old; a daughter, Julia, about eleven, and the son’s tutor. The little girl has a very striking, animated face, not unlike Katie Murdoch. . 14 Alfred, Lord Tennyson After luncheon Mr. Tennyson returned to the lodge, and I took a walk through Coniston, having first brought my books of photographs to Mrs. Marshall to be looked at. At six I went by invitation to dine at Tent Lodge, and spent a most delightful evening. I saw the little boys for a short time; I had met them in a donkey cart near Coniston during my walk.

At six I went by invitation to dine at Tent Lodge, and spent a most delightful evening. I saw the little boys for a short time; I had met them in a donkey cart near Coniston during my walk.
