Emily Eden, sister of the Governor General Lord Auckland, wrote (in Up the Country, 1867, p. 278) that the "Aides-de-Camp have engaged a house for the Misses S. and their aunt, quite close to ours, called 'Stirling Castle'--a bleak house that nobody will live in, and that in general is struck by lightning once a year--but it is close by, and they are preparing for a ball.... The Aides-de-Camp are about as much trouble to me as grown-up sons."
