Recently discovered correspondence illustrates the impact on the Gordon family and their servants of a decision by Queen Victoria to have an indoor picnic at their unoccupied house. Still in her period of extended mourning for the death of the Prince Consort, the Queen was concerned to avoid any public gaze. The niceties of aristocratic manners, the imperviousness of Queen Victoria to the demands she was making on others and the hierarchical responses from all involved in this simple expedition are illustrated by this episode.
