Of course we soon—after in vain endeavoring to listen—began to talk, for which I was extremely well situated, having Mr. Tom Moore for my next neighbor.

I enjoyed it very much, for besides him, Whewell; Sir John Franklin; the Surgeon General, Mr. Crampton; Weld, theear the village of Bray,. . . . we set off for a dejeuner and fete champetre given by Mr. and Mrs. Putland. . . . .
