Tunbridge Wells



A mild, pleasant day. I was quite busy despatching all my various arrears in season for the hour of two, which I had fixed for the family to start on a little excursion, partly to get out town for a part of the dark weather, and partly to see if a change of air might not be of service to Brooks. Accordingly we left the station of the South Eastern Railway, and went by the way of Reigate and Tunbridge to Tunbridge Wells which we reached at about half past four. We drove to the Calverley Hotel, where we found comfortable lodgings.227
