The Park in June: June 10, 2015

Buckingham Palace from St. James Park
It was June.  The King and Queen were at the Palace. . . . But how strange, on entering the Park, the silence; the mist; the hum; the slow-swimming happy ducks; the pouched birds waddling; and who should be coming along with his back against the Government buildings, most appropriately, carrying a despatch box stamped with the Royal Arms, who but Hugh Whitbread; her old friend Hugh--the admirable Hugh!

Mrs. Dalloway (25)
