“ [303] about ‘Angels unawares,’ I felt comforted, thinking that the Angel of Hospitality would certainly visit me, whether the guest proved congenial or not.”

July 15.... The Ambassador arrived as previously announced. He proved a most genial and charming person; a man still in the prime of life, with exquisite manners, as much at home in our simplicity as he doubtless is in scenes of luxury and magnificence. Daisy Chanler drove out for afternoon tea, at my request, and made herself charming. After her came Emily Ladenberg, who also made a pleasing impression. Our guest played on the piano and joined in our evening whist. We were all delighted with him.”

After the Ambassador's departure she writes:--

“He gave me an interesting account of King Charles Albert of Savoia. He is a man of powerful temperament, which we all felt; has had to do with Bismarck and Salisbury and all the great European politicians of his time. We were all sorry to see him depart.”

The Journal tells of many pleasures, among them “a delightful morning in the green parlor with Margaret Deland and dear Maud.”

On August 24 she writes:--

This day has been devoted to a family function of great interest, namely, the christening of Daisy and Wintie's boy baby, Theodore Ward, the President1 himself standing godfather. Jack Elliott and I were on hand in good time, both of us in our best attire.
