I constantly wished D. would get the gout or something—he follows C. about, as much as he does in our alphabet—
Danced next waltz with C. Waltz Bleu! Oh! how I love it—love her! and everything to do with her and it. Dear little C. Good little D. Poor little W. He comes way at the end of the alphabet.
The ball was a magnificent success. The whole court was amused by my self-introduction—the champagne was good and but for the alphabetical couple, I was quite happy.
Mother is such a dear. I would hate to be a mother and chaperone my stupid son and daughter to a ball. We must act ridiculously and be very childish from a mother’s point of view.
Danced the last waltz with C. and broke my word.
