Angela Burdett-Coutts

“When at Holly Lodge the tenor of her days continued in much the same fashion, but there she generally came downstairs in the afternoon, and, if fine, she would be drawn about the grounds in her bath-chair by a fat old pony, and watch the games of tennis, bowls or croquet that might be in progress.”
