November 10.—Lupin seems to like his new berth—that’s
a comfort. Daisy Mutlar the sole topic of conversation during
tea. Carrie almost as full of it as Lupin. Lupin informs
me, to my disgust, that he has been persuaded to take part in the forthcoming
performance of the “Holloway Comedians.” He says he
is to play Bob Britches in the farce, Gone to my Uncle’s;
Frank Mutlar is going to play old Musty. I told Lupin pretty plainly
I was not in the least degree interested in the matter, and totally
disapproved of amateur theatricals. Gowing came in the evening.
