127. Aldred, op. cit.; Unfortunately the diaries which Mrs. Boyle Walsingham had kept were destroyed when the home of her descendants, Old Court at Strangford in Northern Ireland, was set on fire in 1922 during the troubles in that country. The originals were written in Mrs. Boyle Walsingham's own style of shorthand, and we cannot now even check that the transcription given by Mr. Aldred is, in fact, a correct decoding. Had they survived they would undoubtedly have shed much light on our story, which now we shall never know.
