In one room was a portrait of the king, which was very like him. In another that of the Queen—much flattered.
She was a daughter of a merchant of Marseilles.
There are no bed-chambers in this palace.
The king very rarely sleeps out of his palace in town.
We returned to Mr. Arfwedson's & took tea. Mrs. A— is very accomplished, she speaks nearly all the modern languages.
She invited us to dine with them on the next Sabbath.
We dined at Mr. Stockoe's, a partner of Mr. Erskine's. We met quite a large & pleasant party there.
The Stockoe's are excellent, kind-hearted people.
They have paid us every attention.
Mrs. S— sends us presents of fruits & flowers, & all those little attentions which it is so agreeable to receive.— I was quite unwell on Sunday, on account of a very long walk the evening previous.
I did not therefore go to young Arfwedson's. Clara & H——went & had a very pleasant visit.
