Addition To May 11 Entry

Original entry for that day: I guess you couldn’t be too careful in those Victorian days. Even if Queen Victoria, she supposedly of “we are not amused,” was long gone.

As reported in "The Quote Verifier," I found the following: "Words put in Victoria's mouth."

Not only that, but: "Biographer Stanley Weintraub could not verify that Victoria said any such thing, and doubted that she did. 'In fact,' Weintraub told a reporter, 'she was often amused.'"

Correction noted.
