Thursday 22nd January 1846

“Queen Victoria opened the Houses of Parliament. Self saw the carriages, including the State one preceded by about six others, proceed from the Royal Mews to the Palace, altogether presenting a very gaudy sight, so covered with gilded ornaments. In my opinion a procession of aged parish paupers and almshouse inmates would make a much more pleasing sight. New shirt came home made by Mrs Olive making p…l buttons 2d, also new pair of worsted stockings.”

  1. What a dapper chap Nathaniel must have been. Sophia Olive was a dressmaker so I’m sure the shirt was a wonderful creation. More new stockings?
