Wednesday, 28 October 1863

Dark early ― fine later.

Wrote till 1: ― then having completed 326 letters ― began to pack ― fold ― & penny post them. Dreary work.

A. Peel came.

At 6.30 to T. Wyatt’s ― Constance’s state evidently gives them gt. anxiety. Perhaps this ― perhaps that I was uncomfortable ― stupefied & vexed ― somehow the evening was not as pleasant as usual.


Home by 10.30 ― & sate up till 2.30 folding these awful letters. ―

When was Ruth uncivil to Boaz?

When she she trod on his Corn & pulled his ears.
