Reading Experience:

[between journal entries for 26 January and 29 September 1881] 'When Parliament adjourned for a recess in April Charles Schreiber [M.P.] was obliged to go to Liverpool to look after a nephew and niece there: Lady Charlotte accompanied him [...] In an entry in her journal during this visit she says that she has seen enough of it [Liverpool] and never wishes to revisit it [...] A few days laterr she records that she was reading Endymion with much interest, none the less for all the anxiety she felt about Lord Beaconsfield [Benjamin Disraeli]'s health, which was causing great anxiety at the time. He died on April 19.'
