Visits to Farringford

  • William Allingham
Part of the Interviews and Recollections book series (IR)


I lunched at Farringford. We all helped in wheeling Mrs Tennyson to the top of High Down. Then A. T., the tutor and myself walked to Totland’s Bay, the talk all upon classic metres, of which he is full at present. I am invited for Christmas.
