Countess Granville et al. in The Hague - 25 April, 1824

from Letter from Lady Granville to her sister, Lady G. Morpeth, 24–27 April 1824, page 283:

Yesterday I took my little boys to the wood; on Sunday it is as full as Kensington Gardens near the Palace. The band playing. We fed the swans and a variety of birds, and gathered a basketful of wood anemones, with which the whole wood is covered. Little Freddy shouted for joy, William took it more like a philosopher but with equal pleasure.
