Friday -
My dear Sister
I write a few lines
today to assure you that
Fanny
Birth: 1844-12-09 Death: 1866-10-29
is much better - so
that she is reading in bed -
her throat did not supperate
and her fever is now
slight. Dr Jayne
Birth: 1817-02-06 Death: 1897-11-09
leaves
us today - I wish he
would stay as long as Mary
Birth: 1828 Death: 1905

who remains until Monday
going then with Frances
Birth: 1826-12-12 Death: 1909-08-24

& her husband
Birth: 1822-02-03 Death: 1888-11-24

Reason: 

Lady Napier
Birth: 1823-12-20 Death: 1911-08-24
came up to see
me - except our cousins I
saw none of the guests who
I believe were of the elite[ . ]

Supplied

Reason: 

At half past 10 they all

[top Margin] Fanny says what a ‘cheery’
person Aunty is in a
sick room - isn’t she?

went to Mrs Douglas
Birth: 1835 Death: 1899-01-26

party which was a
jam though Will
Birth: 1839-06-18 Death: 1920-04-29
said
a place was found for
dancing which he did
with his hat in his
hand, looking rather handsome
at the time I fancy.
They did not get home
until nearly 2 oclock.
(poor old Nicholas
Birth: 1801-12-24 Death: 1893
).
Today the Scharffs

and Henry

at Judge Wayne
Birth: 1790 Death: 1867-07-05
's
and in the evening all
go to a 'hop' at Willards
so it goes. Fanny and
I have a quiet time of
our own in the 3 story. It is
Annas reception day. I
have amused myself some
of the time by watching
the carriages & their occupants

which are constantly
driving up and driving
away. Sartiges
Birth: 1853-06 Death: 1892
has
just come in a Stanhope
driving himself with a tiger
behind - has thrown off
a cloak lined with purple
silk, thrown the lines to
the tiger, and gone into
the house to be agreeable
to the ladies. Tomorrow
the dinner & evening party
are at his house.
I have had a letter
from Frances
Birth: 1826-12-12 Death: 1909-08-24
since I have
been sick, which I will
answer today - it
was written previous to your
last, when she was recovering
from her illness.
I will write more tomorrow
Love to Clara
Birth: 1793-05-01 Death: 1862-09-05
- I wrote
to her Wednesday.
Your own Sister.
