Sir Thomas and I attended a small gathering at the Ainsworth Estate on Saturday Eve. We joined the de Valois’ and Mme de Bordeaux for libations at a local tavern before arriving at the estate. The evening was quiet and we spent the time laying whist and drinking fine wines and ports at the card tables. It was a relaxing evening full of diverting conversation and company.
