Memoirs of the Duchesse de Dino, 1841- 1850
Rochecotte, January 1, 1841.-Yesterday passed by uneventfully. In the morning I had mass said in my chapel for the late M. de Quelen, and shed heartfelt tears during the service. In the evening my son Alexander, my son-in-law and Pauline gave us some music. They sang vaudevilles and mimicked characters with a vivacity which delighted me, as I am always afraid that they may be bored here, though I admit that their frame of mind was in complete contrast to my own. On the stroke of midnight punch was served; some tears fell into my glass when I thought of those with whom I had so often spent this anniversary.
