O! those prayers! the little disjointed sentences ― uprisings &c.! ― But they are good people.
Breakfast. ― Dull-drizzly morning, at 10.30 ― Left this kind family, & came with John in a pony chaise to Lewes. “Fat beast” show. Rail at 11.30 to Hastings ― there by 12. Mrs. G. Scrivens & G.S. ― Van Crake came to lunch ― vague & listless.
Mrs. & G.S. were pleasant, & the dog not over disgusting.
24 letters ― & 18 payments. At 4 ― having written several notes ― called on the W. Scrivens & returned to dine.
