 : The Golden Beetle

22 November 1854: 'After dusk we adjourned [...] to Ivor's rooms, where I crouched by the fire, feeling chilled and poorly, and betook myself to my needlework. Ivor read a fairy tale, the Golden Beetle, and Charles Schreiber slept in an armchair. In due time came dinner [...] Afterwards we commenced whist, but when the evening paper came in we laid aside the cards and listened with sad interest to the account of the battle and the long list of killed and wounded.'
