7 and insisted on returning to the breakfast-
table, to partake of more coffee and to obligingly

off about noon.     Shepherd up all the after-
noon.    Down town with him by 4.   A raw,

gate.    Drawing a little in the evening.

violent cold in my limbs; too much out of
sort to get up and dress, so lay shivering
and burning and listening to the violent drench-
ing rain without till 11 � when Shepherd came

Mrs. Boley up, and the servant with tea and
toast &c.     Towards the evening dressed and ad-
journed to the room below � the front one, about
